The Minnesota Wild appear willing to take the interim tag off head coach John Torchetti.

General manager Chuck Fletcher is set to meet with Torchetti sometime this week about the head coaching position, which the latter filled over the final weeks of the season.

According to Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet, Torchetti will get the first crack at the job, with former Anaheim Ducks bench boss Bruce Boudreau also reportedly in consideration.

Torchetti led the Wild to a record of 15-11-1 after taking over for the deposed Mike Yeo, and Minnesota pushed the Dallas Stars to six games in the first round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs.
