The Wild Announced Today That They Have Released Dean Evason Of His Head Coaching Duties.



The Minnesota Wild have officially fired head coach Dean Evason and have hired John Hynes to take over.


The 2023-24 season has not unfolded as expected for the Minnesota Wild, who entered with a roster that had delivered two consecutive 100-plus point seasons. Unfortunately, the team is currently on pace for just over 60 points, a significant drop from their recent successes.



In response to the disappointing start, President of Hockey Operations and General Manager Bill Guerin announced today that the team has relieved Dean Evason of his head coaching duties and Bob Woods of his assistant coaching responsibilities. The decision aims to ignite a positive change and revitalize the team's performance.


With a record of 5-10-4 through 19 games, the Wild find themselves four points away from the league's bottom, and they only marginally outpace the struggling San Jose Sharks at 4-15-2. Sitting 12 points behind the Dallas Stars for third in the Central Division and seven points out of a playoff spot in the Western Conference, the team faces a challenging road ahead.
