The Wild had the fewest picks in team history in the 2008 draft.

Despite having just four picks, the Wild did a very good job with the selections it made. The Wild selected three defensemen before taking a left winger. All four players have a very good chance of playing in the NHL in the future.

The Wild selected Tyler Cuma, Marco Scandella, Sean Lorenz and Eero Elo in the first, second, fourth and fifth round respectively.
