ST PAUL, Minn — Two days after wrapping up their developmental camp, the Minnesota Wild inked first-round pick Liam Öhgren to a three-year, entry-level contract.

The Wild selected the Swedish forward No. 19 overall — their first of two first-round picks in this year's NHL Draft. Fellow first-round pick Danila Yurov, a forward from Russia, has yet to sign with the team.

Öhgren, 18, participated in the Wild's developmental camp, running drills with some of the team's top prospects.

Last season, Öhgren played with Djurgarden in the Swedish Junior League where he led the league with 33 goals, 58 points and a plus-41 rating in 30 games.
