Last laugh before the draft starts from USCHO:

9. Minnesota

The Wild’s need is simple — find a player who can score. Drafting at No. 9 isn’t likely going to bring a short-term solution, but the ability to grab a quality forward is something that will do for the time being. Developing players is something this team has proven it’s willing to do, selecting Nick Leddy a year ago (even though it ended up trading Mr. Hockey to Chicago earlier this season). In my opinion, though, this could be the best shot for a collegian to go in the top 10.

Selection: Nick Bjugstad, C, Blaine (Minn. High School)
