Why is the Minnesota hockey team called wild?

Following the move of the Minnesota North Stars to Dallas in 1993, Minnesota was without a professional hockey team until the NHL awarded an expansion team franchise to Minnesota. Because of legalities, the name North Stars couldn't be used so a contest was held for what the new hockey team would be called. The six finalists were Blue Ox (part of Paul Bunyan lore), Freeze, Northern Lights, Voyageurs (recognizing the early french explorers of the area prior to Minnesota becoming a state) , White Bears, and Wild. With the name Wild, being the top choice. The "Wild Animal" logo of the Minnesota Wild isn't meant to represent one particular animal, but all of the wild animals that are part of the Minnesota habitat. While it does look like a Bear or a Cat, the logo contains hidden components, the eye depicts the North Star which pays homage to the former Minnesota North Stars, the mouth resembles a river, the ear is the moon, and the pine trees add texture to the "wild animal."
