‘A’ Warm Welcome Indeed

leave a comment »

Today the State of Hockey was formally introduced it’s newly inked superstar players forward Zach Parise and defenseman Ryan Suter.

The men assembled to be formally introduced as members of the Minnesota Wild, sitting behind a table on a riser along side Owner Craig Leipold, General Manager Chuck Fletcher and Head Coach Mike Yeo.

Each got their sweater for the first time, Suter # 20 and Parise # 11

There was something extra on the left upper chest of each, a large can’t miss Alternate Captains ‘A’

I’m not going to lie I got chills seeing this on each man, a near unprecedented action for any player joining a brand new team. It speaks to the genuine character and leadership qualities of each man.

Zach Parise didn’t even notice his ‘A’ until a member of the media pointed it out 🙂

The Captain ‘C’ will continue to reside and rightfully so with Wild center #9 Mikko Koivu, but with #9, #11 and #20 wearing the letters the leadership of the Minnesota Wild is in great hands for years to come.
