With the Minnesota Wild’s season long over & a stall in the Kevin Fiala trade rumors.
It seems appropriate to take inventory of the team’s assets going into this draft.
After a stellar 113-point season, the team’s 1st-round draft slot is the latest in recent memory (24th overall).
The Wild also traded away their 2nd-round pick in the flurry of deadline-day deals
Namely the one which brought Marc-Andre Fleury to St. Paul on Craig Leipold’s private jet.
Billy G finds himself in possession of 3 picks in the first 2 rounds.
Former-Wild prospect Jack McBain did not see a path to becoming a top-6 center with the Wild.
This pick originally belonged to the Vancouver Canucks, but was sent to ARI in the Oliver Ekman-Larsson trade.
The Wild also recouped a 2-round pick as compensation for 2018 First-round pick Filip Johansson.
This leaves Minnesota picking at 24th, 47th, & 56th overall (1.24, 2.15, 2.24).
