Minnesota Wild draft Ivan Lodnia at Pick 85

Minnesota Wild draft Ivan Lodnia at Pick 85

The Wild drafted a small, but skilled winger with their first selection of the 2017 Draft. As many of you know, the Minnesota Wild did not have any selections in the first two rounds of the 2017 NHL Draft. This isn’t anything new to the Wild.

The trade for Jason Pominville was a huge success.... his new contract has been not so great. The trade for Nino Niederreiter has turned out to possibly be the best deal the Wild has ever made.
