St. Paul, Minn. – December 13, 2016 – During a recent Minnesota Wild game, thousands of fans were surprised by an in-arena announcement to search under their seats for one of 25 hockey puck stickers that will get them exclusive access to the Wild in February.


The Puck Drop winners and a guest will be invited to meet and take photos with Wild hockey favorites Charlie Coyle and Jason Zucker during Associated Bank’s Wild Fan VIP Party at Xcel Energy Center. Each winner will also take home an autographed image of both players.


“Associated Bank is pleased to extend our unique partnership with the Minnesota Wild by offering special experiences and giveaways to fans throughout the season that can’t be found anywhere else,” said Christopher Piotrowski, executive vice president and chief marketing officer, Associated Bank. “As a proud business partner of the Wild, Associated Bank will continue to offer in-arena experiences at all home games, along with Associated Bank exclusive Wild checks* and Wild Debit Mastercard®.”


An additional Puck Drop will be held later in the season. Fans who don’t find a sticker under their seat can also go to to create their own Wild Fan Card for a chance to attend the Wild Fan VIP Party. Simply upload a photo, choose their favorite hockey card design and a hockey nickname (i.e. Glove Dropper, Bench Warmer, Brick Wall) and create a personalized fan card. Fans are encouraged to share their cards on social media.
