Minnesota has all of its picks besides the second round where their own draft choice (#37) was traded to San Jose as part of the Brent Burns trade and subsequently ended up in Nashville via San Jose. In its place the Wild picked up the 46th overall selection in the Marek Zidlicky trade from New Jersey that originally belonged to Washington.
