ST. PAUL, MN — The Minnesota Wild have relieved Head Coach Bruce Boudreau of his coaching duties, and have named Dean Evason interim Head Coach.
“I would like to thank Bruce for his hard work and commitment to the Minnesota Wild during his tenure with the organization and wish him and his family the best in the future,” said Guerin.
Boudreau went 158-110-35 (.579) in three-plus seasons with the Wild and coached the Central Division at the 2017 NHL All-Star Game and is 567-302-115 (.634) in 13 seasons as an NHL Head Coach.
Evason is in his second season with Minnesota after being named an Assistant Coach on June 6, 2018. He joined the Wild after spending six seasons (2012-18) as Head Coach of the Milwaukee Admirals in the American Hockey League (AHL), leading the team to a record of 242-161-53 (.588).
