Paul Fenton

General manager

Minnesota Wild




With the Minnesota Wild failing to make it past the first round of NHL playoffs the last three seasons, owner Craig Leipold decided to shake things up this year. After nine years with Chuck Fletcher as the Wild’s general manager, Leipold replaced Fletcher with Paul Fenton. While Fenton has served as the assistant general manager of the Nashville Predators since 2006, his role with the Wild will be his first time fully in charge of a team. With several new players, and Leipold eager to win the Stanley Cup, Fenton has his work cut out for him.
