That’s Wild

  • Thanks for the draft pick Filip! The Minnesota Wild have received a comensatory second-round pick in the 2022 NHL Draft due to not signing their 2018 first-rounder Filip Johansson to an entry-level contract. The pick will be at 56th overall, because Johansson was selected 24th overall, and 24 plus 32 (teams) is 56. Math!
