The primary goal of junior hockey is to prepare student-athletes to take their game, and their education to the next level. Since the franchise was founded in 2008, the Wenatchee Wild have been remarkably successful in that area, with development being one of the top priorities.

Numerous Wild alumni have gone on to play professional hockey at home and abroad, with four being selected in NHL Entry Drafts. On March 22, 2016, the first Wild alumni played in an NHL game when Nic Dowd was called up to play for the Los Angeles Kings. The game was in St. Paul, MN, less than 90 minutes away from where he played his college career (St. Cloud State), and ironically, his opponent that night was the (Minnesota) Wild.
