Wild Forward Zach Parise Out For Opening Road Trip

October 02, 2017 06:31 PM

The Minnesota Wild will start the regular season without veteran left wing Zach Parise, who has been slowed by a back injury.
    
General manager Chuck Fletcher said after practice Monday that Parise would not travel to games at Detroit on Thursday and at Carolina on Saturday. Fletcher said Parise was "having a hard time getting over the hump." The 33-year-old played in no preseason games. The goal is for Parise to practice with the team next week.
    
The Wild assigned center Luke Kunin to their AHL affiliate Monday and placed defenseman Ryan Murphy on waivers with the intent to assign him to Iowa, reducing their training-camp roster to 22 players. That doesn't include veteran left wing Daniel Winnik, who's on a tryout contract.
