As NHL Draft Pick, Swaney Helps Carry Hometown's Banner

2017 Wild selection joins four other Lakeville natives at Development Camp

by Brian Halverson / Special to Wild.com

ST. PAUL -- By the time the second day of the NHL Draft rolls around, the dramatic moments between each first-round pick, the handshakes, the photo ops and the interviews are long gone. In their place are rapid-fire selections announced with none of the first-day fanfare.

But the Minnesota Wild made history when it chose Lakeville's Nick Swaney in the seventh-round (No. 209 overall) of the 2017 NHL Draft in Chicago last month. The high-scoring forward destined for Minnesota-Duluth in the fall became the first Lakeville South High School player to be drafted by an NHL club.

"It's something that you dream of, especially going to the hometown team is pretty special," Swaney said. "It was a really cool experience for me and my family."
