Until recently, I can't say I had ever heard of Peter Horachek. Peter Horachek has been confirmed as a Minnesota Wild Head Coach candidate and has interviewed for the position. This shows Minnesota Wild fans that Fletcher is truly not keyed in on a veteran coach only.
Peter Horachek has spent the past 7 seasons as an assistant coach for the Nashville Predators. His responsibilities included running the forwards and the Predators power play. He has a natural ability to relate to players, both with veterans and young players transitioning to the NHL.
