Minnesota Wild gear destroyed by van fire.

Of course it's true.... I'm not creative enough to make that up.

Very little happened on the ice at the Minnesota Wild's practice on Friday at Kanata Rec Centre in Kanata, Ontario, but things changed afterward. An equipment truck carrying some of the Minnesota Wild's gear caught fire in the Scotiabank Place parking lot.

The members of the Wild's front office staff are currently in the process of determining the damage to the equipment, and the team has released the following statement:

“There was a fire in an equipment van in the parking lot at Scotiabank Place this afternoon. Some of the Minnesota Wild’s equipment has been damaged. The Wild is in the process of taking inventory to determine the damage to our equipment.”

Assistant Equipment Manager Brent Proulx, who travels with the team tonight, is going to board a plane back to Minnesota tonight. Proulx, Assistant Equipment Manager Matt Benz and Chris Pietrzak-Wegner will gather replacement equipment and load it onto a plane bound for Ottawa at 5:30 AM tomorrow morning.

Thanks.

And don't mind me, I prefer the traditional jerseys. I hated the original Devils uniforms too.

The original Devils uniforms were hideous. Agreed.
