Minnesota Wild Prospects Report: 12-28-2011

This isn't from this year, but this is the match up you can watch today. Get on it. 2:30PM, NHL Network.

Here is your weekly look at the prospects, via Wild PR. As we have noted each week, the Wild have some solid talent coming through the system. If you are watching the World Junior Championships (you are right?), you have seen the talent some of these players possess. As for the rest, well, you'll have to either book a flight, or check out the prospect report. Up to you.

If you decide to book a flight, let us know.

Check out some of the gaudy numbers these kids are putting up, people. If you aren't excited for the future of this franchise, you need to have yourself checked out.

Full report. After the jump.

Once again, thank you to the Minnesota Wild PR staff for this information.
