The Minnesota Wild have announced the rosters for the “Crazy Game of Hockey” Celebrity Game set for Saturday, July 8 at 12:30 p.m. at TRIA Rink, the Wild’s practice facility in downtown Saint Paul. More than 50 celebrities will participate in the game, which will feature three, 20-minute periods and 16-minute intermissions (doors will open at 11:30 a.m.).
The Minnesota Wild’s “Crazy Game of Hockey” charity event is being held in collaboration with the band O.A.R. and Minnesota’s own, Grammy-nominated guitarist Cory Wong on July 7 and 8 in Minneapolis and Saint Paul.
Team O.A.R. will face-off against Team Cory Wong. Each team will wear custom uniforms that will be autographed and auctioned off with proceeds benefiting the Minnesota Wild Foundation. Rosters can be found by clicking here.
“It will be a fun and interactive day, showcasing talent of current NHL players, Wild alumni, other athletes, celebrities, and musicians,” said Andrew Heydt, Minnesota Wild Director of Team Operations & Alumni Relations. “There will be exciting intermission activities, live commentary with player engagement, and local food and beverages for fans to enjoy throughout the day.”
The weekend activities will consist of three events helping launch and promote the Wild Alumni Association: the VIP event presented by Fan HQ at the historic Pantages Theatre in Minneapolis on Friday, July 7 at 7 p.m., a celebrity hockey game presented by Continental Diamond at TRIA Rink in Saint Paul on July 8 at 12:30 p.m. and a concert at the legendary Armory in Minneapolis featuring the band O.A.R. and Cory Wong on July 8 at 7:30 p.m.
