The Birth of a Franchise
Minnesota had been home to the North Stars between 1967 and 1993, before the franchise was relocated to Dallas. In the next few years many parties got together to purchase an existing side and move it to their city, but the plans never panned out.
However the NHL soon announced that they would be expanding the number of teams in the league, and in 1997 it was stated that Minnesota was one of the cities selected, with the eventual franchise being named the Wild.
The Wild started playing in the 2000 season and surprised everyone by posting their first winning season record in only their third year. They also qualified for the playoffs for the first time that season as well, but have as yet failed to win more than a division championship that they clinched in 2008.
The Wild will soon take on the Sharks now at the SAP Center. If you want to see this fascinating encounter for yourself, then get your Minnesota Wild San Jose tickets and catch all the action live at the arena.
