Minnesota Wild fire head coach Bruce Boudreau

The Minnesota Wild announced on Friday that Bruce Boudreau has been relieved of his duties as head coach.

Minnesota (27-23-7) currently sits three points back of the Arizona Coyotes for the second wild-card spot in the Western Conference.

Despite a record of 6-3-1 over the last 10 games, the moves comes after the Wild fell 4-3 to the New York Rangers in a shootout on Thursday night.

A replacement has yet to be named.

Minnesota’s next game is at home on Saturday against the San Jose Sharks.

Boudreau becomes the eighth NHL coach to be fired this season.
