Limited number of complimentary NHL Draft tickets now available

Posted by: Michael Russo under NHL draft, Wild off-season news Updated: June 1, 2011 - 2:20 PM

If you can get into Xcel Energy Center on June 24 and 25 for the NHL Draft, you will not be disappointed.

You get to see tomorrow's stars with pimples on their faces, and if you're lucky, a couple big trades announced.

Plus, every single who's who in hockey is on one single draft floor. It's great drama, which is why it's my favorite league event to cover.

So if you want free tickets, click this link, and good luck because tickets are limited.

Also, as I assumed a week or so ago, the Wild's opting not to sign 2009 sixth-round pick Jere Sallinen.

May write a new blog later.
