The Minnesota Wild took over our home rink -- Sill Arena at the Essentia Duluth Heritage Center -- to create a one-of-a-kind experience for our Duluth East Pee Wee B1’s and North Shore. The Spotlight Game took place on January 25, 2022, with the Greyhounds battling back three times from two-goal deficits to win 5-4 in the shootout. The Wild brought many of their traditional NHL game elements, which included Adam Abrams (Minnesota Wild In-Arena Announcer), John deCausmeaker (Minnesota Wild National Anthem Singer), Nordy (Minnesota Wild Mascot/Flag Bearer) and UMD men's head coach Scott Sandelin, who did the Let’s Play Hockey call. Wes Walz was the honorary coach for Duluth East.
Team locker rooms were Wild-themed, while the Duluth East Pee Wee B1’s took over the Greyhounds High School locker room.
Each player received a custom jersey for this game along with a Wild and U.S. Bank branded water bottle, duffle bag, hat, and commemorative puck. Fans in attendance received a Spotlight Rally Towel.
