This is a complete list of ice hockey players who have played for the Minnesota Wild in the National Hockey League (NHL). It includes players that have played at least one regular season or playoff game for the Minnesota Wild since the franchise was established in 2000 as one of two expansion teams, along with the Columbus Blue Jackets.

As of April 1, 2009, eight goaltenders and 108 skaters (forwards and defensemen) have appeared in at least one regular-season and/or playoff game with the Minnesota Wild since the team joined the league in the 2000–2001 NHL season. The 116 all-time members of the Wild are listed below, with statistics complete through the end of the 2007–2008 season.

The "Seasons" column lists the first year of the season of the player's first game and the last year of the season of the player's last game. For example, a player who played one game in the 2000–01 season would be listed as playing with the team from 2000–2001, regardless of what calendar year the game occurred within.
