Zach Parise will be out with a lower body injury writes Sportsnet’s Cory Wilkens. Parise suffered the injury in the Wild’s 4-0 victory over Buffalo on Friday night. Parise is second in points on the team, notching six points (2-4) in eight games. Parise wasn’t the only one injured in Friday’s affair. Marco Scandella is also listed with a lower body injury, and like Parise, is listed week to week. Scandella has one assist this season.
The Wild are off to a 5-2-1 start this season and much of their success have come from Ryan Suter and Parise. The Wild also called up Christoph Bertschy and Tyler Graovac while assigning Teemu Pulkkinen to Iowa after he cleared waivers today.
