Realistically, it looks like four Minnesota natives will be taken in Friday's first round of the NHL Entry Draft. Should the Minnesota Wild keep its ninth overall pick, it may have a chance to take Duluth's Derek Forbort or Blaine's Nick Bjugstad.

On the chance the Wild trades down in the draft, it's possible that Centerville's Tyler Pitlick or Warroad's Brock Nelson will be available.

While the Wild may have one or none of these players after Saturday, we thought we'd take a look at some of their highlights over the past few years, courtesy of footage from KSTC-TV and Fox Sports North, and the editing wizardry of Travis Brillowski.
