Duluth, MN (Northland's NewsCenter) --- 90-year-old Duluthian Mark Sertich got the chance to skate with the Minnesota Wild on Tuesday afternoon at AMSOIL Arena.

The Wild's web site is making a movie about the Duluth native, who has been skating in a recreational league since the 1980s.

Sertich's skate went well with the Wild, excluding the part when defenseman Brad Staubitz accidentally put him into the boards and knocked him over.

The Wild's web site staff hopes to have the first part of the feature on Sertich ready by sometime in November.
