Minnesota Wild interview Bill Guerin, Don Waddell for vacant GM role

Minnesota Wild interview Bill Guerin, Don Waddell for vacant GM role The Minnesota Wild are aggressively searching for their next GM after unceremoniously firing Paul Fenton just 14 months into his tenure and two more interesting names have popped up. Michael Russo of The Athletic (subscription required) confirms that the team interviewed Pittsburgh Penguins assistant GM Bill Guerin on Monday after previously receiving permission from the club to do so, but it is the second name that raises an eyebrow. Don Waddell also interviewed for the job, despite still being the GM of the Carolina Hurricanes.

The Carolina Hurricanes are an American professional ice hockey team based in Raleigh, North Carolina . They play in the Metropolitan Division of the Eastern Conference in the National Hockey League (NHL).

Jason Mark Muzzatti (born February 3, 1970) is a Canadian-Italian former professional ice hockey goaltender, and the current goaltending coach for the Michigan State Spartans. Muzzatti played four seasons at Michigan State University with a record of 83 wins, 34 losses, and 6 ties.

If you were a fan of the Hartford Whalers in the mid-nineties, you may remember the team acquiring a young first-round goaltender off waivers from the Calgary Flames named Jason Muzzatti. Now nearly 25 years later Muzzatti is on his way back to the franchise, this time as the goaltending coach for the Carolina Hurricanes. Muzzatti has been hired to join Rod Brind’Amour’s staff for the upcoming season after Mike Bales resigned and went to the Buffalo Sabres earlier this offseason.

Muzzatti certainly isn’t a new face for Brind’Amour to get used to. Not only did the pair face off in the NHL, but they were teammates at Michigan State University during the 1988-89 season. Michigan State is where Muzzatti has been coaching the last several seasons, but will now get his first chance to work with an NHL franchise in this capacity. GM Don Waddell explained the hiring:

Jason brings a wealth of experience as a former NHL goaltender and a coach at multiple levels. We believe he will fit in well in our coaches’ office and form strong relationships with our netminders.

Goaltending was an unexpected bright spot for the Hurricanes last season when the tandem of Petr Mrazek and Curtis McElhinney helped them all the way to the Eastern Conference Final, but it will be tested once again with a new group. James Reimer and Anton Forsberg were both brought in to compete to be Mrazek’s backup, while young Alex Nedeljkovic is still waiting for his opportunity at the NHL level. Muzzatti will need to get the most out of each player if the Hurricanes (and Charlotte Checkers for that matter) are to experience the same kind of success in 2019-20.

Jason Day parts ways with caddie Steve Williams.
Jason Day has parted ways with his caddie Steve Williams, according to the Australian Associated Press's Evin Priest. Day and Williams were together for just six events, starting in June at the U.S. Open. In those events, Day recorded just one top-10 finish while missing the cut twice. After not making the cut at The Northern Trust this weekend, Day decided to move on from Williams. Williams famously served as Tiger Woods' caddy from 1999 to 2011, and the 15-time major winner was the top-ranked golfer for the majority of Williams' tenure. After parting with Woods in 2011, Williams began to caddie for Adam Scott.
