Stepan Hangs Up the Skates and Joins the Wild' Front-Office


Michael Russo, a renowned journalist, shared that Derek Stepan is set to join the Minnesota Wild's front-office.

This could mark the end of Stepan's playing career!

"Years of me campaigning for the #mnwild to sign Derek Stepan finally worked. Stepan is shadowing Bill Guerin and the Wild staff and the plan is for him to work with them in some capacity soon. Guerin/Stepan live by each other so they joked it's bring your neighbor to work day."

Stepan has had an impressive run, with 890 NHL games under his belt for teams like the Rangers, Coyotes, Senators, and Hurricanes. Drafted 51st overall in 2008, he's accumulated 515 career points in his career.

Newly-retired players often transition into advisory, consultancy, or scouting positions, but as of now, Stepan's role remains unknown.
