The Minnesota Wild selected eight players in the 2009 NHL draft, which began Friday with the first round and concluded Saturday with rounds two through seven.

In the first round the Wild moved down from number 12 to number 16 and added a third and seventh round pick, selecting Eden Prairie defenseman Nick Leddy.

The Wild needed to add offensive forwards and did so, but not until late in the draft.

The Wild selected two goaltenders, Matthew Hackett and Darcy Kuemper; one defenseman, Leddy; and five forwards, Kristopher Foucault, Alexander Fallstrom, Jere Sallinen, Erik Haula, and Anthony Hamburg.

The biggest move the Wild made was trading its first of three fourth round picks and its fifth round pick to the Edmonton Oilers for forward Kyle Brodziak and a sixth round pick.
