MSE Around the Rink - September 2010

  1. 1. ISSUE 9 • VOLUME 3 • SEPTEMBER 2010 Xcel Energy Center: A Tribute to the Home of Wild Hockey Xcel Energy Center has been the home of the Minnesota Wild for the last ten years. Xcel Energy Center has seen many special hockey moments since 2000 including the first game and Wild win against the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim, Gaborik’s five goal night against the Rangers and that exciting night in April 2008 when the Wild secured the division title. In honor of our 10th Anniversary Season, we will take an in-depth look at Xcel Energy Center and what makes our location unique to the State of Hockey. The Xcel Energy Puck Wall has been a great addition to the décor and began in 2000 when the arena was built. Fans are able to leave a memorial to special friends, memories and great Wild experiences by Section 124. For only $100, fans receive a puck for the wall and a replica puck as a prized keepsake after a fun filled Wild experience, while benefiting Heat Share, a low-income energy assistance program through the Salvation Army. For more information on the puck wall or to order a special piece of the Xcel Energy Center, click here. Prairie Island Indian Community Donation The Minnesota Wild is pleased to announce that during the 2010-2011 season, the Prairie Island Indian Community will again match all dollars raised through the sales of Wild game programs up to $125,000. All proceeds raised through the sale of the game programs will be donated to Minnesota Hockey and the Minnesota Wild Foundation. In addition, the Prairie Island Indian Community for the second year is making a $10,000 donation to Disabled Hockey in Minnesota. Minnesota Hockey and the Minnesota Wild Foundation would like to thank the Prairie Island Indian Community for this generous donation. Important Deadlines Have you sent in your game inventory yet??

  2. 2. History of Hockey: Carl “Cully” Dahlstrom Carl “Cully” Dahlstrom from Minneapolis became the first American to score twenty goals in an NHL season. When he accomplished this feat in 1943-44 with the Chicago Blackhawks, his stats included two hat tricks along with 22 assists giving the Minneapolis native a career year with 44 points. Carl launched his professional hockey career with the Central Hockey League (CHL) Minneapolis Millers in 1931-32. He moved to the cross-town St. Paul Saints a few years later and made his major league debut with Chicago in 1937. Cully won the Calder Trophy as the NHL Rookie of the Year as the Hawks went on to win the Stanley Cup. He scored the key goal in the clinching game of the best of five finals against Toronto to bring Lord Stanley’s mug to the Windy City for the second time in five years. The Flour City native retired after the 1944-45 season. Dahlstrom was among the first twenty-five enshrines to the United States Hockey Hall of Fame when the American ice shrine opened on June 21, 1973. As a tribute to Cully, there will be a display located in the Hockey Lodge during the 2010-2011 season. Included in his display will be a reproduced Chicago Blackhawk’s jersey, a trophy from winning the Hawk’s most popular player award in ’44-’45 and several photos.
