Minnesota Hockey’s Hockey Education Program (HEP) works to ensure a positive athletic experience for youth hockey players by integrating a progressive approach to skill development with coaching excellence and accountability. In celebration of Hockey Day in Minnesota, the Wild and Minnesota Hockey developed the HEP Essay Contest. Each fall, youth hockey players are encouraged to submit a themed essay. The winner of the essay contest is announced during the Hockey Day broadcast later that winter. The essay contest winner receives a unique Wild game day experience for themselves and their youth hockey team with ice time at Xcel Energy Center and luxury suite tickets for a Wild home game.
