The Minnesota Wild still doesn't have a No. 1 goalie locked in for the 2013-14 season.

Michael Russo reports that general manager Chuck Fletcher would still like to re-sign Niklas Backstrom, but he's also expressed interest in Pittsburgh's Marc-Andre Fleury.

Fleury helped the Penguins hoist the Stanley Cup in 2009, but his struggles over the last two seasons earned him a seat on the bench in this year's playoffs.

Reports on Friday indicated the Wild was interested in Kings backup goalie Jonathan Bernier, but he was traded to Toronto.
