Founded in 2000, the Minnesota Wild are one of the youngest franchises in the NHL. Minnesota was awarded an expansion team in 1997, four years after the Minnesota North Stars relocated to Dallas in 1993. The Wild began playing in the NHL in 2000, and made the playoffs in their third-ever season -- advancing all the way to the conference finals.
Wild captain Mikko Koivu and head coach Bruce Bourdreau are ready to take the next step and lead the Wild -- and bring the Stanley Cup home to Minnesota!
