Point Value = 3 points

Answer the question by commenting below. The first correct answer is the winner. Be as specific as possible. It will be up to the judges if your answer is specific enough.

Question 8: Before being named the first permanent captain in team history, Mikko Koivu served as Wild captain how many times?

Winner: Congratulations to "spongey38," who answered the eighth question correctly. Koivu served as captain four times prior to last season - October 2008, November 2008, January 2009 and March/April 2009. The points were incorrectly awarded to "Llamapalooza" and apologizes for the mistake.

"spongey38" earns three points, and has now won tickets to a Wild preseason game. More importantly, "spongey38" moves into tie for third place in the standings with 42 questions remaining.

Come back at 10:00 a.m. tomorrow for question #9.
