Minnesota Wild goaltender Devan Dubnyk and forward Zach Parise were injured at practice Sunday, but coach Mike Yeo told the Minneapolis Star Tribune each should be OK to play Monday against the Detroit Red Wings.
Dubnyk left the ice after making a save with his right wrist and received six stitches to relieve what Yeo called a pressure cut. Dubnyk has lost three of his past four games. Backup Darcy Kuemper is 4-0-2 with a 1.26 goals-against average, .947 save percentage and one shutout in six December games.
Ten minutes later Dubnyk left the ice, Parise limped off and did not return. But he told the Star Tribune he would be OK for Monday.
"He could have continued through practice but we just said, 'What's the point? Get him off and get him rested,'" Yeo said.
If Parise can play, forward Justin Fontaine will be a healthy scratch.
