Though the Wild are in the midst of the worst three-month stretch in franchise history, finishing the 2011-12 season with a roster decimated by injuries, it appears their leadership structure will remain intact.
Both general manager Chuck Fletcher and coach Mike Yeo will return for the 2012-13 season, according to a person with knowledge of the situation.
The third-year GM and the rookie coach oversaw the Wild’s rise to the league’s best record in December, culminating with a franchise-record seventh consecutive road win against Phoenix on Dec. 10. Injuries soon caught up with a team already challenged to score goals, however, and the Wild have gone 9-22-7 since then.
