CGS helmet on display at new Wild Restaurant

A new restaurant opened Dec. 10 in Terminal 2 of the Minneapolis-St. Paul international Airport and it has a hockey theme.

Included in the Minnesota Wild restaurant is a goalie helmet display, which features a helmet painted with a Carroll Goalie School logo, an Edina Hornet logo and a Minnesota State, Mankato logo, two schools I played goalie for. How cool is this? It is one of eight helmets on display at the restaurant.

How did this happen? A few months ago, I was contacted by a friend who works for the Minnesota Wild. He asked if I had a goalie helmet I could loan to them for the display.

I told them I had two helmets available, but they both were decorated with a CGS logo. They were fine with that, so I gave them my helmet to display for two years.

The other helmets that are part of the display include two worn by former North Star Goalie Don Beaupre and one worn by current Minnesota Wild goalie coach Bob Mason.

Look for the goalie helmet display when flying in and out of Terminal 2.
