On Tuesday, Oct. 31, Lakeview Elementary students were paid a special visit by the Minnesota Wild. During the ‘Minnesota Wild Faceoff for Fitness’ school assembly, students learned about the importance of living a healthy lifestyle from current and former hockey players, participated in a Q&A session and a few lucky students even competed in a floor hockey challenge. 

As part of the free assembly program, the Minnesota Wild donated a set of street hockey equipment to Lakeview Elementary and gave each student a pack of Wild hockey cards with each card featuring a fitness or nutrition tip. 

The assembly included a visit from the following:

  • Former Minnesota Wild player, Stéphane Veilleux;

  • Olympic gold medalist and member of the U.S. Women’s National Ice Hockey Team, Hannah Brandt;

  • Former Minnesota Wild in-game emcee, Rusty Kath;

  • Minnesota Wild team dog, Hatty;

  • And Minnesota Wild mascot, Nordy

Thanks for visiting LVE, Minnesota Wild!
