And The Winners Are...
After grueling 24-hour shifts by our panel of State of Hockey experts, the long wait for the 20 winning photos has ended. As one of the certified photo experts, let me start out by saying that this is the toughest part of my job...making cuts. We now know how Jacques Lemaire and his staff feel at the end of training camp as they finalize the roster.
Of course, when Jacques makes his final cuts, there aren’t tickets to a suite on Opening Night on the line. He has no idea what that kind of pressure is like.
We can’t really explain how we arrived at the 20 winners, but let’s just say that tempers flared on more than one occasion as we whittled the list down. Without further adieu, we present to the State of Hockey, this year’s winners of the Minnesota Wild Flag Photo Contest.
Congratulations to all!Click here to see all of the Photo Contest submissions
