MANKATO, Minn. (KEYC) - The Minnesota Wild are making the most of the NHL offseason, making rounds throughout the state to connect the team with different communities.

The Road Tour touched down in Mankato outside the River Hills Mall Tuesday night with a special guest appearance by Wild defenseman Matt Dumba.

It was a great atmosphere for fans of all ages to play street hockey, bean bags and get up close and personal with the alternate captain himself.

“You see the fans that are right here. You get to see thousands of people right here in the middle of August. Which is awesome, we have some of the best fans in the world. Being in the cities, we do not always get to see them in the rural areas. So, to come out here and see the support, brings a smile to my face. I’ve been on the road tour before and I know what these small towns are about and Mankato showed out today,” Minnesota Wild Defenseman Matt Dumba said.

The Minnesota Wild Road Tour kicked off Monday in Rochester, and will next head to St. Cloud on Wednesday before wrapping up in Duluth on Thursday.
