Defending The Blue Line is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization created by a group of National Guard soldiers in Minnesota. The charity assists families of all branches of the military with costs associated with hockey. They provide financial assistance for registration fees, free equipment, summer hockey camps, and sending many deserving families to Xcel Energy Center for a night of fun at a Minnesota Wild game.
Defending The Blue Line is excited for this opportunity to further help military families. Keeping the kids focused and active in hockey is a great way to help keep their minds off of a parent’s upcoming or current deployment.

Defending The Blue Line was the Minnesota Wild’s February Charity of the Month. The Wild is honored to recognize a different local charity each month during the regular season. The team’s Charity of the Month Program provides awareness and exposure for the chosen non-profit over the course of one month.
