ST. PAUL -- Minnesota Wild owner Craig Leipold today announced the National Hockey League (NHL) club has relieved General Manager Paul Fenton of his duties.
"After giving much thought to this difficult decision, I informed Paul today that he was not the right fit for our organization going forward," said Leipold. "I believe we have a good hockey team, a team that will compete for a playoff spot this year, and I look forward to hiring a General Manager that will help us win a Stanley Cup. I would like to thank Paul for his time with the Wild and wish him and his family the best in the future."
The search for a new General Manager will begin immediately. Until a replacement is found, Assistant General Manager Tom Kurvers will serve as acting General Manager.
