BHN Daily Links: Guerin New Wild GM, Brassard Signs With Islanders

Published

on

The dramatic summer saga of the Minnesota Wild GM job is over. The Wild hired Massachusetts native and former Bruin Bill Guerin on Wednesday to replace the departed Paul Fenton. Guerin, a longtime member of the Penguins’ front office staff, most recently as an Assistant GM will take the reigns as GM for the first time. Meanwhile, the New York Islanders went bargain shopping and landed an established veteran on a short-term deal.

Bill Guerin has been hired as the fourth General Manager of the Minnesota Wild, concluding one of the strangest GM sequences in recent memory. He’ll take over an organization that looks vastly different than when he first interviewed for the job 14 months ago. (Hockey Wilderness)

Hiring Guerin wasn’t the only move made by the Wild on Wednesday. The club agreed to terms with RFA Joel Eriksson-Ek on a two-year contract. The center was the club’s first round pick in the loaded 2015 NHL Entry Draft. (Star Tribune)
