Wild to hold open practice in Helsinki
New York – The National Hockey League's Minnesota Wild, in conjunction with the city of Helsinki, Finland, the NHL® and the NHLPA are offering free admission to their practice on Sunday, Oct. 3 at Hartwall Areena in Helsinki.  This is the fourth straight year the NHL will begin the regular-season with games contested in Europe.

Doors to the arena will open at 11 am local time in Helsinki, with the Wild scheduled to begin practice at Noon.  Fans coming to the arena are asked to arrive in their seats by 11:45 am.  There will be no charge to enter the arena and watch the NHL players take the ice as they prepare for the start of the regular-season.  There will be a parking fee.

The Wild and Carolina Hurricanes will play two regular-season NHL games against each other over the course of two days at Hartwall Areena on Thursday, Oct. 7 and Friday, Oct. 8 as part of 2010 Compuware NHL Premiere™.  A limited number of tickets remain on sale to these spectacular NHL events.

Quote of the Day

Obviously there's a lot of expectations around me but it's something I try not to focus on. I'm just trying to go out there, be myself on the ice every day, try to get better, be myself around the guys in the locker room. I think that's what's made me successful and the person that I am.
