Butch riding the Zamboni at the Minnesota Wild NHL hockey game in St. Paul. On Feb 7, we went to the Minnesota group's SCA/AED Awareness Night at the Minnesota Wild NHL hockey game in St. Paul. ew haf 6-7 talbes set up in the arena and demonstrated the AED to the fans. Another Survivor and I got to ride the Zamboni in front of 18,000 people, Gene Johnson got to yell the "Let's Play Hockey" at the start fo the game (it's hockey's version of throwing out the first pitch) and Gene and two others shot pucks into the goal to win $5,000.00 for the group. There were about 50 Survivors, family, rescuers, EMS people, and Medtronic people there--- I think eight of us were survivors.
