A shakeup is underway in the Minnesota Wild’s front office, FOX 9 Sports confirmed Monday.

Assistant General Manager Andrew Brunette is out, along with Co-Assistant General Manager Shep Harder. Brunette, who scored perhaps the greatest goals in the Wild’s existence, was with the organization off and on since 2001.

But, new General Manager Paul Fenton wants his own men, so the changes are coming. Fenton and Coach Bruce Boudreau will meet with the media Tuesday morning to explain the moves made and what lies ahead for the Wild.
