2018 Minnesota Wild Leadership Summit

Presented by West Bend Mutual Insurance

The 2nd Annual Minnesota Wild Leadership Summit presented by West Bend Mutual Insurance will be held at the Saint Paul RiverCentre and Xcel Energy Center on Tuesday, July 10, 2018. High school and college hockey captains and coaches are invited to attend. Attendees will have the opportunity to hear from industry leaders and attend the Minnesota Wild Development Camp. 

The Leadership Summit is free of charge and is open to the first 400 high school and college hockey captains and coaches. Teams will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis.

All participating teams are asked to bring a team-signed hockey stick from their respective teams. The autographed sticks will be donated to the University of Minnesota Masonic Children's Hospital for the purpose of being displayed at the Jason Zucker Family Suite and Broadcast Studio. The dual-purpose space will allow children and families to view Wild games live in the theater, which will include a ticketed entrance, food and beverage and a large projection screen to simulate the experience of being at a Minnesota Wild game. The suite will also allow patients and their families to create and host their own programming, while physicians can create educational programming.

The Minnesota Wild Leadership Summit is supported by the NHL, NHLPA, Minnesota Hockey, the Minnesota State High School League, the Minnesota Boys and Girls Hockey Coaches Associations and the Positive Coaching Alliance.
