Wild Tour Stops In Faribault
A crowd estimated at over 400 stood in line for quite awhile in the parking lot of the Faribault Ice Arena Wednesday afternoon to get an autograph or picture with representatives of the Minnesota Wild hockey team. Broadcaster Anthony Lapanta introduced Stephane Veilleux, Erik Haula and Antti Laaksonen before presented the Faribault Youth Hockey Association with a couple of Wild jerseys and a hockey stick signed by the team. Haula played one season at Shattuck in Faribault and told KDHL he enjoyed the time and, “had some great teammates.” Villeaux talked about his off season training and said you have to be careful not to lift weights too much. Both players said last season’s playoff run was fun and believe they have the tools to go deeper in the playoffs next season.
