CALGARY, Alberta (AP) -- The Minnesota Wild selected seven players Sunday on Day Two of the NHL entry draft.
With their first pick of the day, the Wild drafted Marc Cavosie, an 18-year-old winger at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, where he scored 30 points in 33 games last season, his first year with the team.
Cavosie was taken 99th overall in the fourth round. Scouts said he's a good special teams player who likes to check and is aggressive, but needs to get stronger before he's ready to play in the NHL.
In the fifth round, the Wild took right wing Maxim Sushinsky (132nd overall), 25, who played for Avangard Omsk of the Russian League this year.
In the sixth round, Minnesota drafted defenseman Erik Reitz (170th overall), 17, who played this season for Barrie of the OHL.
The Wild had two selections in the seventh round: center Brian Passmore, 20, of Oshawa in the OHL, and left wing Peter Bartos, 26, of Ceska Budjovice in the Czech League.
Minnesota also had two eighth-round picks: defenseman Lubomir Sekeras, 31, of HC Ocelari Trinec of the Czech League, and center Eric Johansson, 18, of Tri-City in the WHL.
In a trade with the Dallas Stars on Sunday, the Wild obtained left wing Aaron Gavey, center Pavel Patera, the eighth-round pick they used to draft Johansson, and a fourth-round pick in the 2002 entry draft. In exchange, the Wild returned defenseman Brad Lukowich to Dallas and gave the Stars a third and a ninth-round pick in the 2001 entry draft.
On Saturday, the Wild used their first-round pick, the third overall, to take winger Marion Gaborik, 18, from Dukla Trencin in Slovakia. In the second round, the Wild took Nick Schultz, 17, a defenseman from Prince Albert in the WHL.
The Wild earlier traded its third-round selection, the 68th pick overall, along with a fourth-round choice in 2002, to Dallas in exchange for goaltender Manny Fernandez and Lukowich.
