SAINT PAUL/MINNEAPOLIS, Minn.
– The National Hockey League’s (NHL) Minnesota Wild today announced a promotion to encourage all fans to GO GREEN when the team debuts its new green jersey at Xcel Energy Center on Wednesday, Oct. 21 and on Saturday, Oct. 24. Fans that purchase a lower level or Treasure Island Resort & Casino Club Level seat for either the Oct. 21 contest against the Colorado Avalanche or the Oct. 24 matchup against the Carolina Hurricanes will receive a coupon for $10 off a green t-shirt at The Hockey Lodge. The GO GREEN theme will also tie-in the organization’s recently announced “50-50 in 2”
sustainability initiative by donating $10 for every GO GREEN ticket sold to Saint Paul-based Neighborhood Energy Connection.
GO GREEN tickets are available at the Xcel Energy Center Box Office, all Ticketmaster outlet locations, online at www.ticketmaster.com
or call Ticketmaster at 1-800-745-3000.
Minnesota will wear the new third jerseys 15 times this season (13 home games and two road contests). Based in the Wild’s Forest Green with Wheat trim and a hint of Iron Range Red, the jersey’s classic sports look was the overwhelming favorite of Wild fans surveyed during the summer of 2008. The jersey crest features a script “Minnesota” with “WILD” emblazoned below. The script look, including the classic “M”, harkens back to historic Minnesota teams of the past including Minneapolis and Saint Paul teams of the 1930s and 1940s. The familiar “north star” element, borrowed from the primary Wild logo, dots the “I” and adds a decorative detail to the stylized “M”.
Fans can pre-order the new Minnesota Wild third jersey at Hockey Lodge stores located at Xcel Energy Center, Mall of America and the Maplewood Mall. Fans that pre-order the new third jersey will be able to pick it up Oct. 21 at any of the three locations. From Oct. 21-26, The Hockey Lodge stores will be the only Twin Cities locations that fans can purchase the new third jerseys.About Neighborhood Energy Connection
