Bouchard, 27, has one more year left on his contract at $4.3 million, which indicates that is he is likely to be back next season.
Though he has missed 45 games (43 with a concussion, two on suspension) and still suffers symptoms such as fatigue, he has skated lightly in a tracksuit the last few days and is optimistic about next year.
"I'm confident I'll be playing next season," Bouchard said. "I'm staying positive. The good thing is I'm seeing progress. I don't think I'm far from doing slight exercise."
In 37 games with the Wild this season, Bouchard collected nine goals and 13 assists for 22 points.
Meanwhile, Latendresse, whose two-year, $5 million contract is set to expire July 1, missed 66 games due to the concussion and has only played 27 games during the past two years with the Wild.
The 24-year-old is eligible for restricted free agency this summer and it is doubtful that the Wild will tender him a $2.5 million qualifying offer in June.
The two likeliest options are the team will either walk away by not tendering him a qualifying offer, thus making him an unrestricted free agent or negotiate a one-year deal at a lower salary in the off-season.
"I've met with Gui, and what I told him is, 'Let's get you healthy first, and then we'll sit down and have a candid discussion to see where you're at mentally and where you're at physically and what are your expectations going forward,' " Fletcher said. "He was a pretty good hockey player for us three seasons ago and he is still a young man.
"I am open-minded and am not ruling out anything at this point in time."
In 16 games with the Wild this season, Latendresse posted five goals and four assists for nine points, 20 penalty minutes.
