Minnesota Wild put ailing star forward Zach Parise on injured reserve with bruised foot

ST. PAUL, Minn. - The Minnesota Wild have placed left wing Zach Parise on injured reserve because of a bruised foot.

The move was made Saturday. The Wild recalled goalie Johan Gustafsson from Iowa of the AHL to take Parise's spot on the active roster, but Parise can be taken off injured reserve at any time.

Parise has 15 goals and 12 assists in 37 games. He was hurt Nov. 25 at St. Louis and held out of the next game before returning to the ice four days later. But the 29-year-old star has not been the same since. He has only four goals and one assist in 12 games since the injury.

Parise has missed the last two games. Matt Cooke has taken his spot on the first line.

Quote of the Day

This is a great day for me. This is something I've been thinking about for a long time. This is a great opportunity that the St. Louis Blues organization, (owner) Tom Stillman and Doug Armstrong are giving me and trusting me in doing...This is going to be a great challenge for me.
