True North will not comment on the matter today, but has scheduled a press conference for 11 a.m. here Friday morning in a basement conference room of their downtown hotel.

Winnipeg GM Kevin Cheveldayoff had whittled his search list to two candidates, Noel and Chicago Blackhawks assistant coach Mike Haviland.

Haviland, the Free Press has learned, was informed he will not be getting the job.

Prior to taking the reins of the AHL Moose last summer, Noel was an assistant coach for three seasons with the Columbus Blue Jackets. In the final part of his third season, he was interim head coach when the Jackets fired Ken Hitchcock.
