Memorabilia, team news and a chance to meet defenseman Clayton Stoner and goaltender Darcy Kuemper, a great opportunity for fans young and old.
The Minnesota Wild Road Tour is almost finished up, with Albert Lea being toward the end of its 18-city party.

Wild players are itching to get back on the ice, but these past few days have all been about the fans.
Another stop included Des Moines, Iowa..home of the team's new Iowa Wild franchise, which has already seen remarkable ticket sales for their inaugural season.
