Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) --- The Minnesota Wild Road Tour made a stop in the Northland on Wednesday on the northern leg of their trip at the Heritage Sports Center with Charlie Coyle and Jason Zucker greeting close to 1,200 fans.

For both Coyle and Zucker, it was their third time along the road trip. Joining the duo were Wild radio hosts Tom Reid and Kevin Falness.

On Tuesday, the caravan made stops in Silver Bay and Hibbing before arriving in the Twin Ports on Wednesday.

The tour allows the guys to get to meet fans that they wouldn't have a chance to otherwise.

"It's nice to come out and see the turnouts we get and see all of the fans that are out here," said Coyle. "Just interacting with them and giving back to them."

"It's the state of hockey obviously, but some times the northern towns are the most fanatical about," said Zucker. "It's pretty cool to see that and get out and meet some of the fans."

The three-day tour wraps up on Thursday at Princeton and Buffalo.
