I have been a Wild blogger for over 8 years, where I have covered all facets of the organization. I am a native of Elk River, Minnesota; the proud home to two Stanley Cup winners in Joel Otto and Dan Hinote as well as NHL’ers Paul Martin and Nate Prosser as well as number of young men and women that have played in the college hockey and major junior ranks. I also love following hockey at all levels (college, high school) in Minnesota and do my best to write in an objective style while keeping a pulse on the feeling of fans across the State of Hockey.

Tyler Strickland, Staff Writer

I currently live in Orlando, Florida but grew up in Minnesota and I have been a die-hard Minnesota Wild fan from day one. I was the kid who waited hours in line for autographs at the Minnesota State Fair, most notably for Marian Gaborik. My wife and I enjoy watching all the games we can and attending games when possible as well. Hearing that goal horn will always give me chills, and I can’t wait to see what this next season has in store. I graduated from the University of Minnesota with a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Scientific and Technical Communications. Sports writing and working for the Wild have always been dream jobs of mine. Having this opportunity to post about the Wild professional is truly an exciting experience and I couldn’t be more grateful! I hope you enjoy my posts, and please leave comments!
