Minnesota Wild Zach Parise Sits Out Second Game


Minnesota Wild forward Zach Parise did not travel with the team to Winnipeg for Friday night’s game. Parise initially hurt his foot when he was blocking a shot in a matchup against St. Louis on November 25th.

He has missed three games since then and the second game in a row.

Defenseman Clayton Stoner also didn’t make the trip, meaning Nate Prosser will play on the blue line.

Goalie Josh Harding, who was placed on injured reserve, is with the team, as is left winger Stephane Veilleux, who was called up recently.
