ST PAUL, Minn. — The Minnesota Wild are looking back on the 2018-19 season believing with a list of missed opportunities, but with one goal in mind; get better. The focal point from all the players, to head coach Bruce Boudreau, to General Manager Paul Fenton was the offense. The Wild were shut out eleven times this season, with a losing record at home.
They finish the season one game above .500, 37-36, going 3-6-1 in their last ten games. The Wild would finish with a total of 83 points. Matt Dumba was only present for 12 games this season due to suffering a torn right pectoral muscle that benched him for most of the season. Then, Captain Mikko Koivu had season-ending knee surgery after an injury against Buffalo.
With the draft right around the corner and enough cap space available, the Wild are looking to make a considerable change to the future of the team, starting with the offense.
Boudreau has gotten the support from Fenton for next season as the head coach for the team. Bruce is entering his last season under contract with the Wild.
