NHL Draft 2012 Results: 7th-Round Pick Louis Nanne Has Deep Ties To The Wild

The Minnesota Wild shored up both the offense and their defense with their final three picks, selecting defenseman Daniel Gunnarsson, center Christoph Bertschy and left wing Louis Nanne. Nanne has deep connections with the team -- his grandfather, Lou, played for Minnesota from '68 to '78, then stayed on as GM, helping build the team that went to the Stanley Cup Finals in '81.

The 6'4", 190-pound Gunnarsson hails from Sweden, where he played for Lulea HF. He played in 46 matches with the senior team last year, scoring three goals and four assists. He was selected with the Wild's fifth-round pick, 128th overall.

Bertschy played with the Swiss team Bern in the '11-'12 season, recording eight goals and eight assists in 31 games with the senior team. He was selected in the sixth round, 158th overall.

Nanne was the Wild's final pick, taken in the seventh round with the 188th overall selection. He was born in Edina, MN, and played for Edina High School, where he notched 12 goals and eight assists in his junior season. He made a verbal commitment to the University of Minnesota late last year.
