Should the Wild Consider Drafting a Goalie this Year?

Locked On Wild - Your Daily Minnesota Wild Podcast

Jun 13 2024 • 31 mins

On today's episode of Locked on Wild, we discuss areas the Wild should look to draft (while maintaining the Best Player Available mantra) based on their needs in the future. We discuss the goalie position with no clear cut prospects behind Jesper Wallstedt as well as defense with Jared Spurgeon and Jonas Brodin getting older. We also take a look at the first Locked on NHL Mock Draft which had the Wild taking Anton Silayev at 13. We look ta other options based on how the draft board played out. We finish by looking at whether or not the Wild should kick the tires on Patrik Laine after reports of him being unhappy in Columbus have surfaced.
