The Minnesota Wild, the hockey team hedge fund billionaire Phil Falcone owns a 40% stake in, found all of their equipment burnt to a crisp last night.

The Wild was on their way to a Saturday game against the Ottawa Senators when they pulled into a parking lot in Kanata, Ontario.

They opened up the back of their van and discovered that their equipment was completely incinerated.
