At some time approximately forty eight (48) hours before every Minnesota Wild Hockey home game held at the Xcel Energy Center beginning October 6, 2014 and after throughout the Sweepstakes Period, Wild will draw from among all eligible entries one (1) name. That individual will be deemed the potential winner for the next Minnesota Wild Hockey home game.

A maximum of five (5) winners may win the prize described above during the Sweepstakes Period. In the event that a goal is not scored during the final two (2) minutes of the second (2nd) period of any applicable Minnesota Wild home game, the potential winner will not receive a prize; however, the potential winner may reenter to win during the remainder of the Entry Period. There is no guarantee that all five (5) prizes will be distributed throughout the Sweepstakes Period; Sweepstakes Entities reserve the right to modify, cancel or suspend the Sweepstakes for any reason, including the right to add additional prizes and/or eliminate opportunities to win.
