The Minnesota Wild signed first-round pick Liam Ohgren to a three-year, entry-level contract Saturday.

The 18-year-old Swedish forward was the 19th overall selection in this month's draft.

He totaled 58 points (33 goals, 25 assists) in just 30 games for Djurgarden in the Swedish Junior League in 2021-22. He was named the league's best forward after leading the circuit in goals, points and plus-minus rating (plus-41).
