Winnipeg Jets defenseman Josh Morrissey is scheduled to have a phone meeting with the Department of Player Safety on Thursday, regarding his cross-check on Minnesota Wild’s Eric Staal during their playoff game on Tuesday night.

In a play that stirred up a lot of chatter on social media, Morrissey appeared to cross-check Staal in the face during a penalty kill in the first period.

No penalty was called and Staal immediately went to the bench.

Minnesota head coach Bruce Boudreau spoke with the media after the game and claimed that the non-call cost the Wild the game.

Boudreau believes Morrissey should have been thrown out of the game.

Minnesota Wild forward Zach Parise is finally feeling 100% following a sternum injury he suffered during the Stanley Cup playoffs.

Parise, 33, underwent back surgery last October, which caused him to miss 40 games, and is expected to be ready for the start of next season following the fractured sternum he suffered.

“I don’t anticipate that being a problem,” Parise said Saturday, confirming that he feels 100 percent, according to Dane Mizutani of the St. Paul Pioneer Press. “It feels good.”

Parise says he’s been skating for “a while” and is encouraged by his play down the stretch of last season.

“It was nice to feel normal again on the ice. That was the biggest thing for me. … That was relieving,” Parise said. “I’m looking forward to doing that again next season.”
