Wild’s Zach Parise Out 8-10 Weeks After Back Surgery

Associated Press

The Minnesota Wild will be without forward Zach Parise for the next 8-10 weeks after Parise underwent back surgery on Tuesday, the team officially announced.

While Parise has been productive when he is on the ice, the 33-year old has been hit hard by injuries the past few seasons and has only topped 70 games in a season once.

Parise has yet to play this season.

Parise has dealt with back issues in the past as he was diagnosed with a herniated disk during the 2015-16 season.
