Video- Probable Knee Injury For Zach Parise

from Michael Russo of Russo's Rants,

The Zach Parise injury. It’s an apparent right knee injury. The Wild right now is just calling it a “lower body injury.” Yeo said he’d give us an update Friday, so he’s obviously getting an MRI. There’s no doubt though the Wild has an initial diagnosis because usually trainers and doctors can tell right away if the ACL is damaged or gone and/or it’s the MCL or another issue.

The injury came 75 seconds into the game and 30 seconds into Parise’s first shift. High in the offensive zone, Parise turned to the glass to fish for a loose puck. After he backhanded it into the slot, James Neal, who typically plays on that border, hit him above the numbers with Parise a little bent down. Their knees clanked, and Parise’s seemed to twist an abnormal way...

Maybe some hopeful news about the Wild’s leading goal scorer is Ryan Suter said he was working out after the game.

Yeo would only rule Parise out for Saturday’s game against Tampa Bay and made it pretty clear by the end of the presser that “bottom line is we’re losing Zach …”
