Zach Parise had a year to forget in 2016-17 even though the Wild had a successful regular season.
He potted just 19 goals and 42 points in 69 appearances, which were his fewest totals since his rookie year back in 2005-06 when he had 32 points, including 14 markers, in 81 games with the New Jersey Devils. "For me, last year stunk," said Parise. "I didn't play that well. I've been working on my game, hoping to put myself in a spot to not let that happen again." He is looking for a bounce-back effort in 2017-18 and Minnesota's quick playoff exit has served as further motivation. Aug 9 - 5:15 PM

Parise missed Thursday's game against Ottawa after taking a stick blade to the eye on Tuesday night. "It’s a scary thing when you get hit in the eye; you keep your eyes closed, and you don’t know how bad it is or how much damage was done. … Opening your eye for the first time, you’re just praying that nothing happened, nothing too serious," said Parise. "I guess I got really lucky that it wasn’t anything worse."

Zach Parise took a high stick from the Washington's Tom Wilson to the eye on Tuesday night.

He was helped off the ice and had a swollen eye in what was a scary incident, but it looked worse than it was as he is listed as just day-to-day. "He can see, and he's fine as far as that goes," coach Bruce Boudreau said. "I don't think he's going to be out for a long period of time. I don't think he's going to play (against Ottawa), but at the same time, it wouldn't surprise me if after the weekend, he's ready to go."
