It may not be the only reason, but an 11-year old's letter may have landed the Jordan Leopold with the Minnesota Wild.
Monday morning KFAN acquired, from a member of the family, a hand written letter written by Jordan's daughter, Jordyn, writing to the Wild during their losing streak back in January politely asking the Minnesota Wild to bring her daddy home.
"Well, my dad is very lonely without his family," the letter reads. "We are living in Minnesota right now and I am lost without my dad and so is my mom, my 2 sisters and my brother."
Leopold, formerly a member of the Columbus Blue Jackets, was dealt to the Minnesota Wild before the deadline hit Monday afternoon.
