There’s a bit more optimism out of Minnesota regarding Zach Parise than there was last night.
Yeo then added that he didn’t believe the injury to his leading goalscorer was long-term:

As for the “what now?” part…
— Yeo didn’t get into any potential timetable for return, only confirming that Parise is meeting with doctors today.
— The Wild haven’t made any recalls from AHL Iowa, and may temporarily hold off due to cap ramifications.
— With Parise out, Friday’s lines looked like this:
— Yeo said any recall could slide into either of the bottom two lines, but the top two would remain the same regardless of who gets added to the roster.
