Wild pay tribute to Prince with purple logo
Minnesota Wild

The Minnesota Wild are mourning a legend with local ties.

The NHL club paid tribute to Prince, the supremely talented multi-instrumentalist and pop icon who died Thursday at the age of 57, by adding a purple background to the profile images across its social media platforms.

Prince was born in Minneapolis in 1958 and lived in the North Star State until his death.

He was nearly synonymous with the color purple, thanks in large part to "Purple Rain," his 1984 recording that's widely considered one of the greatest albums in music history.
