Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Michael Russo of Russo's Rants,
Zach Parise continues to work hard off the ice but is not allowed to be on it. I don’t think we’re going to see him for awhile. I don’t know what awhile means, but I hear the latest MRI he had showed a fracture in his foot that didn’t show up the first time around.
Typically stress fractures take four to six weeks. Knowing Parise, it won’t take that long and this shouldn’t affect his Olympic status, but coach Mike Yeo has changed his tune the past few days and stopped calling it day-to-day.
“We’ve got to keep him off the ice until it starts to feel better and then we might have to keep him off a little bit longer,” Yeo said this morning. “We just have make sure he gets a full opportunity to heal. It’s a long season and we need him to have the opportunity to go out and perform and compete at the level that he’s capable of.
“He’s been really grinding it out there. He’s such a competitor, he wants to be in the lineup and it’s been extremely difficult for him. We have to give him a lot of credit for that, but at the same time, we’ve got to make sure he gets better."
