The Minnesota Wild may have a rather large problem on their hands.
It appears that there may be some long term effects of the injury suffered by superstar forward Zach Parise back in November, and according to a report fromMike Russo of the Star Tribune, that knee injury is what kept Parise out of the line up on Thursday night. Parise has admitted it is in fact the knee injury flaring up again.
"It felt great for a long time," Parise said. "A 10-game stretch after I came back, it felt normal, like nothing happened and then it kind of went the other way."
Parise says right now he's doing everything he can to take it easy, and make sure he's 100% for the games that truly count.
"I don't want to be dealing with it going into February and March and April. That's the hard part right now ... trying to manage it, I guess."
This has to be a point of serious concern for the Wild.
