The Minnesota Wild have plenty of prospects in the system.

I am ranking the top 15 in a three-part series. To be a prospect, I took any player under 25 years old and played less than 25 games in the NHL.

The prospects in the Nos. 5-1 grouping include; Matt Hackett, the nephew of a former NHL player; Marco Scandella, who was physically a late bloomer; Robbie Earl, a fast offensively gifted forward; Tyler Cuma, who is coming off a major knee injury; and Nick Leddy, the reigning Mr. Hockey.
