Pierre-Marc Bouchard - Do I smell a cell phone endorsement coming? Verizon? T-Mobile?

"Pierre-Marc is just 24 years old and the best years of his career are ahead of him. He is a good example of how drafting and developing your own players leads to team success. This is why the Wild was willing to make such a substantial and long-term commitment to him."

Pierre-Marc Bouchard signs with Minnesota Wild

At the end of last season, I put a poll on my MN Wild Freak blog, asking readers which free agent should be the top signing priority for the Minnesota Wild. Brian Rolston and Pierre-Marc Bouchard...

Ralph Engelstad Arena Props

Minnesota Wild Schedule

"The way I've played the game since I was very young is an aggressive style. I love the hitting side of the game. Goals are fun, but I love the physical play. It's the Irish blood coming out of me."

Owen Nolan – this sounds like a dare to those young enforcers to clean this old guys clock.

Wild Sign Kurtis Foster
