WILD FIRST-ROUND PICKS

Year Player/team Pick

2010 Ø Mikael Granlund, HIFK Helsinki 10th overall

2009 Nick Leddy, Eden Prairie High 16th overall

2008 Tyler Cuma, Ottawa (OHL) 23rd overall

2007 Colton Gillies, Saskatoon (WHL) 16th overall

2006 Ø James Sheppard, Cape Breton (QMJHL) 9th overall

2005 Benoit Pouliot, Sudbury (OHL) 4th overall

2004 A.J. Thelen, Michigan State 12th overall

2003 Brent Burns, Brampton (OHL) 20th overall

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

DRAFT HITS

Marian Gaborik

2000, first round, 3rd overall

Franchise leader in goals (219), assists (218). Scored record 42 goals in 2007-08.

Mikko Koivu

2001, first round, 6th overall

He's developed into a two-way force, leader and arguably the game's best Finn.

Brent Burns

2003, first round, 20th overall

Magnificent tools. After injuries slowed him for two years, he had a career-high 17 goals and 46 points last season.

Nick Schultz

2000, second round, 33rd overall

Matchup defenseman is the Wild's all-time leader with 681 games.

Pierre-Marc Bouchard

2002, first round, 6th overall

Despite missing more than a year with a concussion, he's the fourth-leading scorer in franchise history (305 points).

DRAFT FINDS

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.

Marco Scandella

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

Clayton Stoner

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.

DRAFT MISSES

A.J. Thelen

2004, first round, 12th overall

Defenseman out of Savage was a risk when the Wild took him and is long gone from the organization.

Roman Voloshenko

2004, second round,

42nd overall

After scoring 33 goals as an AHL rookie, his development halted and he quit to return to Russia.

James Sheppard

2006, first round, 9th overall

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.

ON THE RISE

Colton Gillies

2007, first round, 16th overall

Looked like a bust, but a strong postseason in Houston has created high hopes he'll make it.

Carson McMillan

2007, seventh round, 200th overall

Still a project but looks like he could have a career as a checking forward.

Matt Hackett

2009, third round, 77th overall

The Wild traded Anton Khudobin so it could hand the reins to the youngster, and he won 14 Calder Cup playoff games this spring.
