  • By Michael Schmidtke, Day 1, 2024

MINNEAPOLIS - It wasn't long ago that Blizzards fans were celebrating the draft lottery where they moved from pick 7 all the way to pick 3. That was short lived as the Blizzards today agreed to a deal with Louisville to trade pick 3 and a future Oakland tritons first round pick for pick 8.

The Blizzards, who need all the talent they can get will instead look to load up for next season and hope for a talent to slide all the way to 8. It is believed that after workouts Blizzards coaching staff were not happy enough in what they say and believe in the depth of the overall top 10.
