Minnesota Wild 2017-18 Season Preview

I’ve always wondered why Minnesota named their team the “Wild” ever since they re-entered the league in 2000. Well, I looked it up. Apparently, it was chosen as an ode to Minnesota’s wildlife and outdoors reputation. Oh. Other names that … Continue reading

Florida Panthers 2017-18 Season Preview
