  • 2022 NHL Draft: Wild select Hunter Haight with 47th overall pick


    The Minnesota Wild started off their day with a clear motive: Keep on getting more stable and creative down the middle with some sturdy forwards, by selecting Hunter Haight with the 47th overall pick.

    Haight, 5-foot-10, 174 lbs, played last year for OHL’s Barrie Colts, scoring 22 goals and 41 points in 63 games. Scouts have him penned as a potential breakout player in the CHL, as the team gets better around him. He certainly has some hands to put in the offensive-zone work and dish out to his teammates, if he can’t score goals himself.

    Might seem like a little bit of a reach by some rankings — was slotted as low as the late-second by some outlets — but it is someone to bank on and look for potential. This pick is certainly easier to swallow after Minnesota nailed their two first-rounders by selecting Liam Ohgren and Danila Yurov.

    The Wild have five more picks remaining, so stay tuned!
