MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Mike Yeo has bounced back nicely since being fired by the Wild last February.
He’s now the associate head coach of the St. Louis Blues and will take over the top job when Ken Hitchcock retires at the end of this season.
Yeo’s Blues have the second-best record in the Western Conference this year, and Sunday night, will return to Xcel Energy Center.
His wife and son Kyler still live in Woodbury as Kyler finishes his last year of high school and plays for Hill-Murray.
And Saturday, Yeo took advantage of a rare night off in Minnesota to watch his son’s game, where WCCO’s David McCoy caught up with him.
In the video above, the former Wild coach talks about what it will be like to walk into the Xcel as the bad guy for once.
