The man who tried, and failed, to buy the Phoenix Coyotes out of bankruptcy is now a minority owner of the Minnesota Wild.
“I am very honored and excited to be a part of the Wild organization and to be partners with [majority owner Craig Leipold],” said Hulsizer in a statement. “As a life-long hockey player and fan, I have always dreamed of winning a Stanley Cup. Craig and I share a commitment to winning and we look forward to bringing the Stanley Cup to Minnesota.”
“On behalf of the Minnesota Wild and the State of Hockey, I would like to offer Philip our sincere thanks for his support of the Wild and hockey in general over the past seven years,” Leipold added.
