Matt Cullen...the newest member to the Wild!
Probably the most exciting news for SCSU Husky Hockey fans this off-season was the addition of Matt Cullen (SCSU Alum '95-'97) to the Minnesota Wild. Matt Cullen will provide the Wild with a solid, quality #2 center which they have been sorely lacking in for some time now. Cullen has been close to a 50 point guy for several seasons, he can win faceoffs, can play powerplay and penalty-kill, and HE HAS WON A STANLY CUP! Matt Cullen is a perfect fit for the MN Wild and best of all he is an SCSU alum. According to the Wild's GM Chuck Fletcher, "He was our first priority today, and we're very fortunate and thrilled to have signed Matt". Cullen will be a great asset to the Wild and will be much better for the Wild than their previous SCSU alum Mark Parrish (SCSU Alum '95-'97). (However, a big part of Mark Parrish leaving the Wild was his relationship with previous coach Jacques Lemaire.)
Below are a couple of YouTube videos to get you pumped up for Cullen's return to Minnesota!
