10. Mikael Granlund, C, Minnesota Wild
Height: 5-10, Weight: 180, Spring ranking – 9

Granlund finally made the commitment to cross the Atlantic and join the NHL ranks just in time for the breakdown in labor talks to delay the NHL debut of his considerable talent. Long considered one of hockey’s top prospects, Granlund will eventually add dynamic and creative offense to the Minnesota lineup. Although some have criticized Granlund for being too slow, too small, or simply too fragile, the truth is that although he may be limited in some physical aspects, he is one of the most electrifying players in the world and will quickly become a fan favorite in the twin cities and beyond. Granlund will begin the season in the AHL, where in his first exhibition game action for Houston he posted four goals and an assist. That performance is only a sign of things to come for the young Finnish phenom.
