Hockey Wilderness Podcast- A Minnesota Wild Podcast

The 2016 NHL Draft is almost here, and there’s no one better to prepare us for Draft Weekend like ESPN.com’s Corey Pronman!

The prospect guru sits down with Tony and they discuss the draft from a Minnesota Wild perspective.

Topics include:

  • Why players Corey was very high on (Mikael Granlund, Jonas Brodin, Matt Dumba) haven’t turned out like Wild fans thought.
  • Joel Eriksson Ek raising his stock over past season
  • Why Kirill Kaprizov might be the best Wild prospect in the system
  • Drafting the best player available vs. Drafting for need
  • Kieffer Bellows’ potential- and potential to land in a Wild uniform
  • Mid-round prospects that would fit well in Minnesota
  • Minnesotans that might go in the first round
  • How high-school tournament sensation Casey Middlestadt could go in the 2017 Draft

Make sure to follow Corey Pronman’s work with ESPN Insider (Corey is worth the price of admission), and follow him on Twitter @CoreyPronman, where he’s great at interacting with followers.
