"I've got no update," Red Wings coach coach Mike Babcock said after the game. "He'll go [to Detroit] and get tested and we'll see what happens. Obviously, he looked like he was in great pain."

TORONTO -- Goalie Sergei Bobrovsky is the latest player to make a long-term commitment to the Columbus Blue Jackets.

Bobrovsky on Friday signed a four-year contract extension worth $29.7 million. It will pay him $7.425 million per season starting in 2015-16 and makes him the second-highest paid NHL goalie behind Henrik Lundqvist of the New York Rangers.

"We believe he's only going to improve," Blue Jackets general manager Jarmo Kekalainen said here after the deal was announced. "It's ultimately up to the player to prove that he's worth the contract that he gets. That's the way we operate, we operate on giving them the futures, and that's [why] we evaluate these players every day, but we believe with his hard work and dedication he's going to be one of the top goalies in this league for a long time."

ST. PAUL, Minn. -- Minnesota Wild forward Zach Parise was back on the ice Friday, trying to find a little bit of normalcy in what has been a trying few weeks.

Parise's father, former NHL player J.P. Parise, died Wednesday after a battle with lung cancer.

"Not only the last few days, but the last month has been really hard," Parise said. "Last night, watching the game, finally my wife told me, 'You have to go to the rink. You have to go and practice and get away and try to get back in the groove of things.'"
