Minnesota. The state of hockey. Proud home to one of the most passionate fan bases in the National Hockey League. A state known for its widespread hospitality, infamous “Twin-cities”, and it’s love for all sports from the collegiate to the professional level. Teams like the Twins, Golden Gophers, Timberwolves, Vikings, and of course, the Wild, dominate headlines and conversations from all facets of life. Although there have been changes both on and off the ice this off-season, one thing remains certain. The love and dedication of the Minnesota fans for their sports teams run high and deep across the beautiful state of Minnesota.
