Fenton was hired as GM for the Wild in May of 2018. He was let go in July of 2019 after some questionable trades that many felt hurt the team. Trading Mikael Granlund to the Nashville Predators for Kevin Fiala straight up would be one example. In another one-for-one deal, Fenton traded Nino Niederreiter to Carolina for Victor Rask. Former NHLer Bill Guerin was eventually hired as his replacement.

Before serving as GM of Minnesota, Fenton was an assistant general manager with Nashville, while also serving as GM of the AHL's Milwaukee Admirals, the Predators' minor league affiliate. He also played 411 games in the NHL during the mid-80s and early 1990s for Hartford, the New York Rangers, L.A., Winnipeg, Toronto, Calgary and San Jose.
