SAINT PAUL, Minn. - The Minnesota Wild announced today that the organization will host U.S. Bank Kids Day on Saturday, Sept. 29 at 1 p.m. when it plays the Winnipeg Jets in a preseason contest at Xcel Energy Center. Thousands of youth from across the State of Hockey will have the opportunity to experience a National League Hockey game thanks to tickets donated by the organization and Wild Season Ticket Members.
Before the game, kids will have various opportunities to experience free, kid-friendly activities such as face painting, balloon artists and crazy hair stylists. Kids can also receive an autograph from a Wild player to be announced from 12:15 to 12:45 p.m. Kids will also take center stage in each of the regular Wild in-game elements including making the "Let's Play Hockey!" call, riding on the Zambonis during intermission and more.
