WIld's Lemaire ends an era

Minnesota Wild coach Jacques Lemaire has ended an era in Minnesota on Saturday.

Lemaire, the first coach the Wild has ever had made his resignation as coach official on Saturday after a 6-3 victory over Columbus, ending the Wild's season.

The Star Tribune reports that Lemaire, 63 does not think this is a retirement.

"I think it's time for the players to get a new coach and myself to look for other stuff," Lemaire said. "I always said there'll be a time. There comes a time that you know it's the right time to go, and I know this. I had a great time, man. I had eight great years."

Asked if he would want to stay with the Wild in another capacity, Lemaire said, "I don't think it'll be the case."
