Uh, oh. Zach Parise still hasn’t practiced with teammates at Wild training camp

It’s been nearly a week since Wild players reported to training camp and star winger Zach Parise has yet to practice with his teammates. Parise, however, has been skating hard either before or after practices, working closely with skating coach Andy Ness. That would indicate it is only a matter of time before Parise returns to action.

Wilderness Walk: It’s all fine

Things are fine in the world of the Wild. Really. No panic happening at all. Definitely not. Nope. none. We didn’t sign a bottom-6 winger to a $12M contract, we’re not relying on two aging centers continuing to produce. In all seriousness, things are legitimately probably ok. But it’s hard to not see cracks forming it what started so wonderfully last year.

Wilderness Walk: Zach’s Crap Back Attack

Wilderness Walk: Zach’s Crap Back Attack

Parise’s back is giving him problems and the training camp roster has been released. Zach Parise’s back is hurting him. I don’t have an Athletic subscription yet, so I can’t speak to how severe it is or whether or not it is at all related to the spinal disc issue from last season (perhaps one of the Wilderness that does can comment with more detail?), but that wouldn’t be terribly surprising. In any case, any kind of injury to the alternate captain is a big concern for Wild fans. Parise may not have to carry the weight of being the biggest offensive threat on the team anymore, but...

Zack Mitchell made his NHL debut last season and returns to the Top 25 under 25

Zack Mitchell made his NHL debut last season and returns to the Top 25 under 25

There were a few Wild prospects that made their NHL debut this past season. Odd for a team that went the regular season with nary a scuffle with the injury bug outside of Zach Parise. Zack Mitchell got his call to the show for the November 10th match-up against the eventual Stanley Cup champ Pittsburgh Penguins. The undrafted free agent turned AHL vet, especially on a team with so much influx of younger and newer talent, he has made himself quite a mainstay in the Wild farm system. Before last season, when the Iowa Wild experienced a large roster turnover, Mitchel was among the team leaders...
