The Wild will caravan throughout Minnesota again this summer, making stops in 18 cities in the State of Hockey on the 2012 Wells Fargo Minnesota Wild Road Tour.

Three separate legs of the tour begin Monday, June 25 and will make stops at two locations each day. The tour will culminate with the seventh annual Wild Summer Bash on Thursday, June 28 at the Guidant John Rose MN OVAL in Roseville from 6-9 p.m.

Matt Kassian will be joining other Wild celebrities – including Minnesota Wild players Charlie Coyle, Nate Prosser, Jason Zucker, Justin Falk, Chad Rau and Matt Cullen – to visit various cities throughout Minnesota.

The first leg of the tour (Matt Kassian, Charlie Coyle, Antti Laaksonen, Mike Greenlay) will make stops in Winona, Rochester, Austin, Owatonna, Mankato and New Ulm. Leg two (Nate Prosser, Jason Zucker, Bob Kurtz, Tom Reid) will start in Duluth, and continue in Eveleth, Grand Rapids, Brainerd, St. Cloud and Willmar. The final leg (Justin Falk, Chad Rau, Wes Walz, Kevin Falness) will begin in International Falls, and then make stops in Warroad, Thief River Falls, Bemidji, Fargo/Moorhead and Detroit Lakes. Matt Cullen also will make an appearance in Fargo/Moorhead.

Each tour stop will include a fundraising opportunity for local youth hockey associations, as well as autographs from Wild celebrities.

The Guidant John Rose MN OVAL in Roseville will serve as the site of the Summer Bash on Thursday, June 28. From 6-9 p.m., fans will have a chance to play hockey-themed games and can take part in autograph sessions and photo opportunities with Wild celebrities. Other activities include open skating, live music, Zamboni rides, food and beverage, a live KFAN broadcast and more.

Mark it on your calendars, and plan to come out and join us!
