The Minnesota Wild attracted interest in defenseman Jonas Brodin this past season, prior to the trade deadline, and further inquiries are expected to be made this month.
Brodin, 22, has five-years remaining on his contract, which comes with an annual salary cap hit of $4.167 million.
Wild GM Chuck Fletcher wasn't shopping Brodin, but he did receive plenty of interest in him during the season and with the NHL Draft quickly approaching, trade talks could intensify in the coming weeks.
The Edmonton Oilers, Detroit Red Wings and Philadelphia Flyers have reportedly expressed interest in Brodin.
Edmonton's interest is intriguing, as the Wild has been linked to Oilers center Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, who is believed to be available for trade.
In 68 games with the Wild this past season, Brodin registered two goals and five assists for seven points and 18 penalty minutes. He had one goal and two assists in six playoff games with the Wild.
