Eli Kringen, 11, won the opportunity to take the ice Tuesday night at Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul. Kringen, who plays for the Bemidji Squirt A hockey team, was one of 20 winners of a radio contest called “Skate with the Wild.” Prior to the Wild's game Tuesday night, he met and chatted with defenseman Ryan Suter (pictured). He also had the opportunity to practice and scrimmage with former Wild forward Wes Walz and current forward Luke Kunin at the arena. (Submitted photo)
