The Minnesota Wild will be searching for a new general manager as they will not renew the contract of general manager Chuck Fletcher, team owner Craig Leopold announced on Monday (h/t NHL.com).

The Wild were eliminated by the Winnipeg Jets in the 1st round of the Western Conference Stanley Cup Playoffs.

Until Minnesota finds their new general manager, senior vice president of hockey operations Brent Flahr will be filing the role on an interim basis.

“I want to thank Chuck Fletcher for his substantial contributions to our franchise over the past nine years,” Leopold said. “Through his strong work ethic, integrity and vision, Chuck and his staff built a winning culture and a perennial playoff team. For all of that I am grateful. I feel it is time for a new approach aimed at delivering a Stanley Cup to the deserving fans of the State of Hockey. I wish Chuck and his family the very best going forward.”

Parise, 33, underwent back surgery last October, which caused him to miss 40 games, and is expected to be ready for the start of next season following the fractured sternum he suffered.

“I don’t anticipate that being a problem,” Parise said Saturday, confirming that he feels 100 percent, according to Dane Mizutani of the St. Paul Pioneer Press. “It feels good.”

Parise says he’s been skating for “a while” and is encouraged by his play down the stretch of last season.

“It was nice to feel normal again on the ice. That was the biggest thing for me. … That was relieving,” Parise said. “I’m looking forward to doing that again next season.”
