State of Hockey Anthem

Minnesota is truly the state of hockey and we have an official song to prove it. The Minnesota Wild Anthem is played before Wild home games on the gigantic scoreboard at the Xcel Energy Center and is appropriately called "State of Hockey."  The piece includes hockey fans from all parts of Minnesota and is a reminder of the pride Minnesotans have in the game of hockey and the communities and lives it touches throughout the state.

Here are the words to the Minnesota Wild Anthem. . .

We were raised, With the stick, And a pair of blades, On the ice we cut our teeth
We took our knocks, In the penalty box, Our mother was the referee

This sport was here, Before we came, It will be here when we're gone
The game's in our blood, And our blood's in the game, Lay us down under, A frozen pond

We will fight to the end, We will stand and defend, Our flag flying high and free
We were born the child, Of the strong and Wild, In the State, the State of hockey

A big blue line runs around our state, A line that can't be crossed
The day they try to take this game, Is the day the gloves come off

We will fight to the end, We will stand and defend, Our flag flying high and free
We were born the child, Of the strong and wild, In the State, the State of hockey
