    SAINT PAUL/MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. – The National Hockey League’s (NHL) Minnesota Wild altannounced today that the organization will use the team’s Saturday, November 19 game against the Nashville Predators to honor the memory of former Wild player Sergei Zholtok.

    Prior to the 7:00 PM game against the Predators, a concourse display will be unveiled near Gate 3 that will include a Zholtok story and memorabilia.  A pre-game video celebrating his life will also be shown to fans.  Additionally, members of Zholtok’s on and off-ice family will be in attendance, and in his memory, both teams will wear “SZ” stickers on their helmets.  A photo of Sergei currently hangs in both the Predators and Wild locker rooms.
