National Hockey League draft time is not only an exciting time for Minnesota Wild fans, it’s just as highly-anticipated among Wild management. That includes Wild President and General Manager, Doug Risebrough, and Assistant General Manager/Player Personnel, Tom Thompson. Risebrough makes the decisions on draft day, but only after Thompson tells him what those decisions to be.
In-studio radio host Kevin Falness sat down with both men on Wednesday and got their thoughts on the draft for the upcoming Wild PONDcast.
Also on the horizon in the State of Hockey is the Wells Fargo Minnesota Wild Road Tour. Wayne Petersen, the brains behind that operation, also chatted it up with his good friend, Mr. Falness.
