Mini-Sticks for Mikko: Your Chance to Help

Let's make this happen, Wilderness.

No no, not that Mikko. Not Mikko Koivu, but a young hockey player whose nickname is Mikko.

Five year old John "Mikko" Gegen has been diagnosed with neuroblastoma, and has only one thing to look forward to: painful rounds of chemotherapy. In order to help ease his pain, and that of his brothers, there is a campaign to gather as many mini-hockey sticks as possible for young Mikko.

Here's the deal, hockey fans. It's time to flood this little man with mini-hockey sticks. Any mini-sticks. Got a Minnesota Wild mini stick sitting around? Send it in. You can buy a new one. Send in any mini-sticks you can. It doesn't matter the event or team. The more obscure the better in my mind.

Let Mikko and his family know they have the support of people all over the world. Send in your mini-sticks, then tell your friends to do the same. What's more important? Bringing a smile to the face of a five year old, or having that mini-stick collecting dust in your basement?

You can spread the word on Facebook, Twitter, or simply by picking up the phone and talking to your friends and family.

Let's get this done. Mini-sticks for Mikko.

Here's where you can send them:
