October 29, 2016

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Zach Parise will miss the Minnesota Wild’s game Saturday night against the Dallas Stars and is week to week with a lower body injury.

The Wild say Parise was injured during a 4-0 win over Buffalo on Thursday night. The seven-time All-Star is second on Minnesota in scoring with two goals and four assists, and he got his 300th career goal last Sunday. He missed last season’s playoffs with a back injury.

Marco Scandella is also out week to week with a lower body injury. He went to the locker room during the first period after getting his right leg tangled in a scrum Thursday.

Scandella has one assist in seven games this season.

Minnesota recalled forwards Tyler Graovac and Christoph Bertschy from AHL Iowa and sent down left wing Teemu Pulkkinen.
