According to Michael Russo of the Star Tribune, the Anaheim Ducks are interested in former Minnesota Wild coach Mike Yeo.
Minnesota fired Mike Yeo this past February. He was in his fifth season behind the bench and had a 173-132-44 record in his time with the Wild. Minnesota made the playoffs the past three seasons after failing to qualify in the coach’s first season. He was 11-17 in the playoffs while in Minnesota, taking the team to the Western Conference semifinals each of the past two seasons. Yeo joins Travis Green and Paul MacLean as confirmed potential replacements for Bruce Boudreau in Anaheim.

Boudreau also stated he believes he can win without players like Ovechkin, Getzlaf, and Perry. For more on his press conference visit: Boudreau Believes He Can Win Without Superstars
