It’s been almost a full decade since Bill Guerin (Wilbraham, Mass.) skated his last shift as an NHL power forward. Since then he’s been working his way up the hockey management ladder, culminating in his inaugural campaign as general manager of the Minnesota Wild, in a season that was suspended by the novel coronavirus.
