Employee who accused Bill Guerin of abuse leaves the Wild

He's the second high-profile employee to leave in less than two weeks.



The Minnesota Wild have already made a pair of high-profile firings in the last month, terminating head coach Dean Evason which was followed shortly by firing assistant general manager Chris O’Hearn. 

Of course, there was also the eyebrow-raising situation in which general manager Bill Guerin was investigated for alleged verbal abuse of another team employee, who was revealed to be director of team operations Andrew Heydt. 

And now, Heydt and the Wild have "mutually agreed to part ways", according to a statement that was released by the team. Per Michael Russo: 

"After 10 years with the #mnwild, director of team operations Andrew Heydt and the Wild have mutually agreed to part ways, I’m told. Heydt had accused Bill Guerin of verbal abuse. The Wild investigated via third party law firm but declined to publicly disclose the findings. 

The Wild said in a statement last week that they took steps to appropriately address the matter. Guerin remains in his post as President of Hockey Operations/GM."
