MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -Minnesota Wild coach Jacques Lemaire says he'll return for an eighth season with the team.
Lemaire, who announced his decision in a news release Saturday, has a career record of 500-381-168 over 14 years, including 60-52 in the playoffs.
But with the Wild, he's gone just 11-18 in the postseason. The Wild were ousted in the first round last month by the Colorado Avalanche, culminating what Lemaire called his toughest season as a coach.
