Chuck Fletcher will remain in Minnesota, but the former Wild general manager has a new job.

The New Jersey Devils hired Fletcher as a Senior Advisor to the General Manager/Hockey Operations. He'll be an assistant to Devils GM/VP Ray Shero. The two worked together from 2006-09 with Pittsburgh.

In a team release, Shero said: "Chuck brings a vast array of experience working for teams at different stages of their growth. He has seen teams start from the beginning, teams that were building toward the Stanley Cup Playoffs and teams striving to be consistent contenders. Those experiences will serve valuable to us."

Fletcher, 51, was the Wild general manager from 2009-18. He'll remain based in Minnesota; his son, Keith, will be a high school senior this year, and Fletcher hoped to remain in the state for at least another year.
