Zach Parise's ice time on the penalty kill has been reduced again this season.

In his first season with the Wild, Parise averaged 1:27 of shorthanded time per game, which was cut down to 1:02 in 2013-14 and this year it's down to just 27 seconds per match. Parise broke his foot last year on the penalty kill, so fantasy owners will be happy that the team is trying to keep him out of harm's way. It also keeps him fresher for even strength and power-play situations.
