Darby Hendrickson will maintain his status as an assistant coach, who usually watches things from the press box and relays information down to the bench. Goalie coach Bob Mason will be kept on in the same role as well. It's interesting that there was any hold-overs as any new coach should be allowed to make any and all necessary changes to his staff. While Mason and Hendrickson are definitely capable of performing the jobs well at a high level, I was much more into completely cleaning house. This would allow for a much cleaner divorce from the Mike Yeo era, but there's something to be said for having people in place to ease the transition and knowing the locker room.
We don't yet know who Boudreau will choose for his Minnesota Wild staff, but it's clear that there will be new faces behind the bench as his staff is starting to come into focus.
