Wild GM: Torchetti a 'very serious candidate' to be coach

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) Minnesota Wild general manager Chuck Fletcher is about to embark on another coaching search, the third of his tenure and a critical one for the immediate future of the team and Fletcher's own standing as the leader in the front office.

A three-month scramble to get to the playoffs hasn't left him much time to consider the exact qualities Fletcher is looking for in the next coach. But he did acknowledge that the best man for the job may be sitting right in front of him.

Fletcher called interim coach John Torchetti "definitely a very serious candidate" to be the team's permanent coach in his end-of-the-season media briefing on Thursday.
