The University Of Minnesota Amplatz Children's Hospital got a few unexpected visitors Monday. 10 of the Minnesota Wild hockey team stopped by and dropped of shirts, blankets, autographed pictures and even many smiles to the kids at the hospital. Nothing like being half asleep for a few of  the kids and having some of the best hockey players in the world show up to say hi.

The Minnesota Wild make many trips to area hospitals and it's not only a thrill for the kids to see these guys, but the players get a lot out of these visits as well.
