The Minnesota Wild have extended their search for a new general manager.

According to The Athletic's Michael Russo, John Ferguson Jr., who serves as the Boston Bruins' director of player personnel, spent Tuesday in Minnesota interviewing with Wild owner Craig Leipold and president Matt Majka.

On Wednesday, New Jersey Devils assistant GM Tom Fitzgerald is expected to go through the same process, and last week, Columbus Blue Jackets assistant general manager Bill Zito was in Minnesota for an interview.

All this after Nashville Predators assistant GM Paul Fenton also traveled to Minnesota to put his hat in the ring.

The Wild fired longtime executive Chuck Fletcher after being eliminated from the playoffs in five games at the hands of the Winnipeg Jets, marking the third consecutive season that Minnesota has been set aside in the first round.
