2002 Pierre-Marc Bouchard, Chicoutimi 8th overall
2001 Ø Mikko Koivu, TPS Turku (Finnish Jr.) 6th overall
2000 Marian Gaborik, Dukla Trencin (Slovakia JR) 3rd overall
Franchise leader in goals (219), assists (218). Scored record 42 goals in 2007-08.
He's developed into a two-way force, leader and arguably the game's best Finn.
Magnificent tools. After injuries slowed him for two years, he had a career-high 17 goals and 46 points last season.
Matchup defenseman is the Wild's all-time leader with 681 games.
Despite missing more than a year with a concussion, he's the fourth-leading scorer in franchise history (305 points).
Cal Clutterbuck (pictured below)
2006, third round, 72nd overall
Hits like a freight train and is one of the game's top agitators, he led the NHL in hits his first three seasons.
2008, second round, 55th overall
Taken one round after Tyler Cuma, he made Canada's world junior team in 2009 and could vie for a spot next season
2004, third round, 79th overall
Took awhile to mature because of injuries, but he became a steady, hard-hitting regular in last year's second half.
Defenseman out of Savage was a risk when the Wild took him and is long gone from the organization.
After scoring 33 goals as an AHL rookie, his development halted and he quit to return to Russia.
Expected to flourish in Todd Richards' higher-tempo system, instead he floundered with two goals in 2009-10 and missed last season because of a broken kneecap.
Looked like a bust, but a strong postseason in Houston has created high hopes he'll make it.
Still a project but looks like he could have a career as a checking forward.
The Wild traded Anton Khudobin so it could hand the reins to the youngster, and he won 14 Calder Cup playoff games this spring.
