On November 13, 2014 the Minnesota Wild players wore camo jerseys for warm ups before the game. The jerseys were then autographed by the respective players. You can bid on the jerseys now at Wild.com/Camo
The Minnesota Wild Military Appreciation Night was sponsored by Thomson Reuters at the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul, Minnesota. Thomson Reuters once again provided 100 Lower Level tickets to DTBL for military families.. Defending The Blue Line® set up a booth at the game and brought in two teams of 8 (7 skaters 1 goalie) for a total of 16 kids on the ice during intermission to scrimmage.
Defending The Blue Line ® has events happening all over the nation. Check out the current ones on the website. Organizations, schools, universities, businesses, NHL teams, NHL players, and individuals are helping DTBL raise money to help the military kids play hockey. We have even had many children in the nation step forward with equipment drives, donations from birthdays, donations from bar mitzvah’s, bake sales, and even lemonade stands. Defending The Blue Line ® is very honored to have all of this support from everyone. Thank you for helping DTBL support military children.
