There was a homecoming at the Xcel Energy Center Thursday as Minnesota Wild took on the Colorado Avalanche in the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

Erik Johnson is on the Avalanche, he grew up in Bloomington and played for Holy Angels and the University of Minnesota Gophers.

Johnson's parents couldn't get to see their son play on Monday but came to Thursday night’s game.

Bruce Johnson says he's very proud of his son and enjoys watching him play in the NHL.
