The Minnesota Wild were originally founded in 2000 and are part of the Central Division. Upon entering the NHL as an expansion team, the team chose the Wild as its name to reflect the Minnesota’s abundant wildlife and outdoors reputation. The five other finalists were the Blue Ox, Northern Lights, Voyageurs, White Bears and Freeze. The Wild play their home games at Xcel Energy Center in Saint Paul, Minnesota.
