Minnesota Wild hockey players Charlie Coyle and Jason Zucker, as well as former North Stars players Tom Reid and Mike Craig, greeted more than 700 fans for two hours Wednesday, June 25, at Breezy Point Ice Arena as part of the Wells Fargo Minnesota Wild Road Tour.

They signed promotional photos, as well as items fans brought with them, including hockey pucks and sticks, jerseys and sweatshirts, and hats.

After spending the night at Breezy Point Resort and playing a round of golf Thursday, June 26, the tour headed to Princeton and Buffalo. It all led up to the Summer Bash/NHL Draft Watch Party on Friday, June 27, at the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul.

Coyle and Zucker are forwards on the team that reached the second round of playoffs this past season for the first time since 2003.
