After a two-year hiatus, Minnesota returned to the first round of the NHL Entry Draft. When the Vancouver Canucks selected former Burnsville High School forward Brock Boeser with the 23rd pick in the first round of the 2015 NHL Entry Draft on June 26, it marked the 12th time in the last 16 years that a Minnesota native was drafted in the first round. Since 2000, a Minnesotan has gone in the first round in all but four drafts (2001, 2011, 2013, 2014).
