A WILD animal born in the north woods of the Iron Range, Nordy was found skating the frozen lakes and ponds near Eveleth, MN. While no one truly knew what sort of Wild animal he is, it was clear that Nordy encompassed the true spirit of the Wild. So in 2008, Nordy proudly accepted the offer to become the mascot for the Minnesota Wild. He stays true to his "up north-y" roots but has moved into his own lair at Xcel Energy Center so he can be closer to his favorite hockey team. Nordy wears the number 18,001 to represent his place as a member of The Team of 18,000. To date, he has the largest number ever allowed on an NHL jersey! Nordy lives for hockey and is one of the last players to still sport his "hockey hair" mullet. Nordy is strong and rugged but huggable and fun loving. He loves to visit kids and get high fives but be careful...he can be a rascal and play jokes on anybody!
