"With the 7th overall pick in this year's draft, the Minnesota Wild are proud to select; from the U.S. National Development Team and Minnesota-born, Jacob Trouba!"

"The Minnesota Wild organization is so pleased to have been able to add Trouba to their team. With the belief that building an organization starts from the net out, the Wild are focusing on building a defensive core around Harding and Backstrom. We started last year with adding Brodin and this year, we add a physical defenseman in Trouba that is a tremendous skater with great speed, moves the puck well, great vision and plays a solid two-way game. We have no doubt that Jacob will be a staple on our back end for a long time."
