The Minnesota Wild will be without defenseman Matt Dumba for what is being described as “significant time” as he is set to undergo surgery for an upper-body injury sometime within the next week, Wild general manager Paul Fenton announced on Friday.

Fenton exited Minnesota’s game against the Calgary Flames on Saturday after only 5 minutes of action, a game in which Fenton got into a fight with Flames’ forward Matthew Tkachuk less than a minute into the contest, although Fenton didn’t confirm if the injury occurred during the fight.

“When the player says, ‘I don’t know when it happened,’ that’s what I’m going on. He does not know when it happened,” Fenton said, according to Sarah McLellan of the Star Tribune.

According to The Athletic’s Michael Russo, Dumba’s season is in jeopardy.

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.”
