Wild Head Coach Mike Yeo lives the game of hockey. However, when the bench boss is away from the rink, his favorite pastime is fishing. On Tuesday, Sept. 9, he will trade in his coaching hat for an anglers cap, as he hosts the inaugural Mike Yeo Classic, a fishing tournament which will raise money for the Miracles of Mitch Foundation and Angel Foundation. The event is in partnership with Gander Mountain and is a springboard for a larger event in 2015.
Six boats will launch on Lake Minnetonka in the morning and conclude with a weigh-in in the afternoon. Wild players Erik Haula, Keith Ballard, Kyle Brodziak, Matt Cooke and Justin Fontaine are set to participate in the tourney.
