Parise returns to Wild lineup vs. Avalanche

Minnesota Wild forward Zach Parise returned to the lineup Friday against the Colorado Avalanche, four days after injuring his left foot blocking a shot in a loss to the St. Louis Blues.

The Wild announced Tuesday that Parise was expected to miss 2-3 weeks with a contusion on his left foot, but Parise skated the next two days and was declared ready to go after getting through warm-ups Friday.

Parise, the Wild's leading scorer with 11 goals and 22 points, took his spot on the first line with Charlie Coyle and Mikko Koivu.

Quote of the Day

I remember the first time at Wrigley Field all of us had the long johns, the turtlenecks and the extra equipment because we were afraid of being cold. Halfway through the first period everybody's ripping everything off and we just ended up wearing what we would normally wear for a game at the United Center.
