MN Wild 2012 Season: Suter and Parise

It's seriously embarrassing how excited I am for puck season. I am such a sports fan; baseball, basketball, football, but can we be real for a second?

Hockey is so amazing. I grew up on a lake, my Dad played hockey for Cretin in high school, and I live in Minnesota. I feel like I was forced to like hockey, but not actually, because how could you not?

I could basically skate by the I learned to walk, and started playing in our community teams and the high school team by 4th grade and never stopped until I made it into college. Sorry, but D1 hockey is a little too competitive for me.

So.... probably it's fine that I'm excited about this?! Especially with Suter and Parise. Who's with me? Hockey fans, let's go.

Dany Heatley Sues Former Agent and Others For $11-Million

Our favorite Wild Player, Dany Heatley has filed an $11 million dollar lawsuit in an Alberta court.

According to the Globe and Mail:

Heatley, a left winger with the Minnesota Wild, alleges that his former agent and business adviser, Stacey McAlpine, as well as McAlpine’s parents, Gerald and Eugenia, lured him into several real-estate ventures across Canada and the United States with promises of huge returns that never materialized. The lawsuit, filed last week in the Court of Queen’s Bench in Calgary, also alleges that Heatley’s former agent dipped into his bank accounts and made unauthorized withdrawals of more than $4-million.

The 20-page statement of claim alleges conspiracy, oppression, breach of fiduciary obligation and unjust enrichment by the McAlpine family, which Heatley accuses of using multiple corporate entities “as a sham, cloak or alter ego, in order to shield themselves from personal liability.”

The defendant companies named in court documents are Presidential Suites Inc., Waterfront Development Inc., McAlpine Sports Management Inc. and NSEM Management Inc. They are no longer operating in Calgary. Attempts to reach the principals – the McAlpine family, who now reside in Winnipeg and Kenora, Ont. – were unsuccessful. Stacey McAlpine is no longer on the list of certified agents with the National Hockey League Players’ Association.

Yikes! We'll keep you updated with all the newest details!

Crazy MN Wild Fans!

I found an interesting article when I was digging around online for some MN Wild gossip for my readers. With the headline, Woman Allegedly Steals MN Wild Tickets from Work and Sells Them on Craigslist, I knew this was going to be a good read.

Apparently, a 29-year-old employee of Culligan Water, based in Minnetonka, Maggie Brynn Hoeg,  is being charged with selling the company's Minnesota Wild tickets for her own benefit on her work computer. She sold $5,000 worth of tickets!

Back in February, the Minnetonka Police were informed that 92 Minnesota Wild tickets, which were $88 each, had been stolen and sold from Culligan, allegedly by Hoeg.

Before she was questioned, Hoeg quit by e-mail and left her job.

When the Minnesota Wild office was contacted, they had the 92 tickets cancelled and reissued. However, a man who had purchased some of the tickets through Craigslist said he had bought the tickets from Hoeg and attended several games. When he informed Hoeg that the tickets had been cancelled, she allegedly said her father had lost some of them. She said she would replace them when after she was reissued tickets from the Wild but never did. Hoeg allegedly paid the man back $250 to date.

Oh, the things people do for a quick buck!
