Watch: Nino Niederreiter gets an up-close look at Obadiah's slap shot

Look out Columbus, the Wild may have a secret weapon on Saturday.

Minnesota's favorite sports kid was making the rounds with the Minnesota Wild Friday.

Obadiah Gamble, who has been a favorite of Teddy Bridgewater and the Minnesota Vikings, attended Wild practice as they prepare for their big game against Columbus Saturday night.

Afterwards he got the chance to hang out with the Wild in the locker room, and judging by the video and the slap shot that almost caught Nino Niederreiter in the face, he has a little game.
