Wild lose Parise for multiple weeks to broken sternum
ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — The Minnesota Wild were hit with a major setback in their first-round playoff matchup with Winnipeg, a broken sternum for left wing Zach Parise suffered in the last game that will keep him out for at least the remainder of the series and likely longer if they advance.
The Wild revealed the injury about three hours before Game 4 against the Jets, with a vague announcement on Tuesday by general manager Chuck Fletcher that declared Parise's status as "week to week."
The Wild took a major hit Tuesday even before taking the ice Tuesday for Game 4 when it was revealed winger Zach Parise will be sidelined week-to-week after suffering a fractured sternum in Game 3 against the Winnipeg Jets on Sunday.
Typically that injury would sideline a player for up to two months.
