ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — The Minnesota Wild sure caught the attention of their fans at last year’s NHL draft, completing a big trade that was one of the headlines of the weekend event at their home arena.

This time, they’ll be in Pittsburgh and out of the spotlight, less likely to pull off a deal on par with last summer’s sending of All-Star defenseman Brent Burns to San Jose for Devin Setoguchi and a couple of top prospects. Those two first-round picks, Charlie Coyle and Zack Phillips, are part of a well-regarded group of young players turning pro this season and pushing for inclusion on the Wild’s roster.

Mikael Granlund has the highest-profile of those up-and-comers, and Johan Larsson, Brett Bulmer and Jason Zucker are also part of the mix.
