Jesper Wallstedt – The highly-touted goalie prospect stolen by the Wild at 20th overall will be on every hockey fan’s radar. The Swedish Wall has been hyped as the top goalie prospect in the world and will look to prove that by continuing his insane level of play from the canceled tournament earlier this year, where in the two games played he had a 96.2 save percentage (SV%), a 1.50 goals against average (GAA), and a monster 48 save shutout.
Wallstedt continued improving post-cancellation in the Swedish Hockey League where he topped all goaltenders with a 1.98 GAA and was top five with a 91.8 SV% in 22 games played.
Liam Öhgren – The newly acquired first round pick will be the Wild’s most coveted forward in the tournament. After a strong year in Djurgardens with 58 points in 30 games, Ohgren will look to prove his offensive prowess to his new team and perhaps collect a medal in the process.
