NHL Draft Is Sunday 27 Jun 13

The Minnesota Wild continue to put the finishing touches on their NHL Draft Board.  The NHL Entry Draft is Sunday in Newark, New Jersey.  Minnesota currently does not hold a first-round pick, having traded the slot to Buffalo in exchange for Jason Pominville last season.  The first scheduled pick for the Wild is No. 46 overall, which is a second-round selection.  Minnesota assistant general manager Brent Flahr [[ FLARE ]] says he has no doubts there will be trades made throughout the early stages of the draft, but wouldn’t say whether he thinks the Wild will be one of the teams involved in any of the trade activity.
