A little about me, I was born and raised in the State of Hockey. Spent a decent chunk of my youth without an NHL team to follow due to the relocation of the Northstars to Dallas.

Writing about the team and all things hockey gives me a productive outlet to focus my fanaticism about the game. I've recently started Tweeting, so feel free to start following me on Twitter, @amcaswell.

Some Fresh Faces in Minny

We all knew the 2009-10 season was going to mean some big changes for the Minnesota Wild.  What we couldn’t have known is that a team with some already daunting challenges was going to be further tested by having to overcome numerous injuries.  From a slew of concussions (Pierre-Marc Bouchard, Petr Sykora, Brent Burns), a…
