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.
(The equipment manager and two Assistants flew back to Minnesota to gather replacements for the team) but like Bob McKenzie, from TSN, a Canadian sports network said on Twitter: “Wearing a brand new pair of skates or new equipment in an NHL regular season game is no player’s idea of fun.”
