Minnesota Wild put veteran forward Mark Parrish on waivers

ST. PAUL, Minn. - The Minnesota Wild have waived veteran forward Mark Parrish with three years left on his contract.

Minnesota general manager Doug Risebrough says Parrish was simply a victim of the NHL's salary cap. He was paid US$2.5 million last season and would have cost the team a salary cap hit of $2.65 million this season, bringing the Wild about $2.1 million short of the cap.

Parrish scored 35 goals in two seasons with Minnesota, including just 16 in 66 games this past season.

If he isn't claimed off waivers Wednesday, the Wild will likely buy out the rest of his contract for two-thirds of his salary. If he's picked up on waivers, his new team would take over his salary and the total cap hit.
