Wild fans, the 2020 National Hockey League Entry Draft is here!
2020 has been an unpredictable year, and this year’s draft will be no different. After the draft lottery winner New York Rangers select consensus first-overall pick Alexis Lafrenière as expected, just about anything can and likely will happen. Will a big name fall to the Wild at the ninth overall selection? Will they trade up or down in draft order? Will they trade Matt Dumba? Zach Parise? Someone else? So many questions needing answers, and we’re about to get them.
As always, you can expect Hockey Wilderness to have all the news, notes and analysis on every player selected by Minnesota, from No. 9 overall to the depths of the seventh round.
