MINNEAPOLIS - The Minnesota Wild have hired the Pittsburgh Penguins' Chuck Fletcher as their new general manager, a person with knowledge of the move says.

The person spoke on condition of anonymity because an official announcement wasn't planned until Friday afternoon. Fletcher, the Penguins' assistant general manager, replaced Doug Risebrough.

Risebrough was the Wild's GM from the team's founding in 1999 until he was dismissed in April.
