The Minnesota Wild announced Saturday that forward Zach Parise and defenseman Marco Scandella are week-to-week with lower-body injuries sustained Thursday against the Buffalo Sabres.

Parise has two goals and four assists in eight games this season. He scored twice on Sunday against the New York Islanders and had one assist versus Buffalo on Thursday night.

Scandella was hurt toward the end of the first period against the Sabres and missed the final two periods of the game. Scandella has one assist in seven games this season. He set a career high with 16 assists in 73 games last year.

Earlier in the day Saturday, the Wild recalled forward Tyler Graovac from the Iowa Wild and assigned Teemu Pulkkinen to its American Hockey League affiliate. Minnesota also announced it has recalled forward Christoph Bertschy from Iowa.
