Some feel-good news early in Day 2 of the NHL entry draft when the hometown Wild trades its third- and fourth-round pick to the Vancouver Canucks for the second-to-last pick of the second round (No. 60).
With the selection, the Wild drafted Wayzata High School's Mario Lucia, the son of the U's Don Lucia.
Right before the trade, Wild owner Craig Leipold was trying to run back to team’s draft table before he got stopped by your truly.
