SAINT PAUL/MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. – The National Hockey League’s (NHL) Minnesota Wild announced today that players will wear custom-designed camouflage jerseys during pre-game warm-ups tonight (Tuesday, April 23), when it hosts the Los Angeles Kings at 7 p.m. at Xcel Energy Center. The Minnesota National Guard is the presenting partner for this game.
These autographed camouflage jerseys will be available in an online auction starting on Friday, April 26 on the Community page of www.wild.com. The auction will run through Sunday, May 12. Proceeds from the online auction will benefit the Minnesota Wild Foundation and Defending The Blue Line.
Defending The Blue Line is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization created by a group of National Guard soldiers in Minnesota. The charity assists families of all branches of the military
with costs associated with hockey. They provide financial assistance for registration fees, free equipment, summer hockey camps, and sending many deserving families to Xcel Energy Center for a night of fun at a Minnesota Wild game.
Defending The Blue Line is excited for this opportunity to further help military families. Keeping the kids focused and active in hockey is a great way to help keep their minds off of a parent’s
upcoming or current deployment. For more information on how you can help Defending The Blue Line please visit www.DefendingTheBlueLine.org.
Since its inception in 2000, the Minnesota Wild has invested nearly eight million dollars back into the community. The organization has provided autographed and non-autographed merchandise for local fundraisers and benefits, made contributions to non-profit organizations, implemented successful events and provided awareness and brand connectivity for smaller non-profit
