Go meet Matt Kassian. Just don't get too close.
Looking for something to do on a hot June evening in Minnesota? After work, gather up your friends and family and head down to the Guidant John Rose Oval in Roseville for the Minnesota Wild's Summer Bash. The event will feature several Wild players including Justin Falk, Nate Prosser, Chad Rau, Charlie Coyle, Matt Kassian, and Jason Zucker. The event is free and open to the public, running from 6-9PM.
At the Summer Bash, you will be able to get autographs and take photos with Wild celebs, go for a skate, listen to some live music, take a zamboni ride, and check out a live KFAN broadcast. Where else are you going to get that when it is 90+ degrees outside? The answer, of course, is nowhere.
Oh, and just in case you weren't quite convinced that NHL players are solid human beings, the players will be paying a visit to some sick kids at Children's Hospital and Gillete Children's Specialty Hospitals before heading over to the Oval.
With the free agent frenzy about to being, it is good to know that the Wild and the players still have their priorities in order.
Head down to the Oval tonight, folks. Go have some fun. Take some pictures, post them here and share with your fellow Wild fans that can't make it.
