Wild's Parise not expected to play Thursday vs. Blues @NHL

Minnesota Wild forward Zach Parise isn't expected to be in the lineup Thursday against the St. Louis Blues, coach Mike Yeo said Wednesday.

Parise will travel with the Wild for the game at Scottrade Center. Goalie Darcy Kuemper has a concussion, Yeo said, and will not make the trip.

Parise left practice Sunday with an apparent lower-body injury but skated Monday and had two assists in 18:04 of ice time when the Wild defeated the Detroit Red Wings 3-1 on Tuesday.

Parise has 11 goals and 22 points in 27 games this season. He missed eight games in November with a knee injury.
