ST. PAUL, Minn. - Minnesota Wild forward Zach Parise sat out the Wild's game Saturday night against Tampa Bay and is considered week to week with a sprained MCL in his right knee.

Minnesota was also without defenceman Nate Prosser, who is considered day to day with a back injury.
The Wild recalled forward Cristoph Bertschy from Iowa of the American Hockey League. Bertschy was set to make his NHL debut.
