As we approach the end of summer it's time to start thinking about hockey, and the Minnesota Wild have been doing a lot of prep for this upcoming season - including putting in a new scoreboard.  

I've been pleasantly surprised that the Wild have signed some key players this year in the off-season, including Thomas Vanek and just yesterday they re-signed Justin Fontaine.  The Wild seem dedicated to making this year a true contention year.

Considering the players we have picked up over the last couple years, in addition to this year, the Wild seem dedicated to making a playoff run this year, and if you've ever been to a Wild game you know the scoreboard sucked.  Well this year you'll be pleasantly surprised at the new scoreboard they're putting up - IT"S AWESOME!

Here is the video of the old one going away.  The bottom video shows what the new one looks like.
