Parise picked up assists on the power play and at even strength in Tuesday's 3-2 win over the Sharks.
Parise failed to register a shot on goal after taking eight over the previous two contests, but that didn't stop him from pushing his point streak to three games. It's concerning that the 32-year-old veteran has just one goal in his past nine games after scoring 15 in his first 51, and even more so that he's only generating 1.9 shots on goal per appearance over this poor stretch after mustering 3.1 up to Mar. 5.
Parise scored a goal and added an assist during Friday's win over Florida.
Parise has been limited to just 54 games and posted only 16 goals and 31 points. It's certainly respectable production, but he's also been leapfrogged on the depth chart by some younger forwards on the team. Parise shouldn't be considered a go-to fantasy asset at this stage of his career, and it's likely best to leave him to deeper settings.
As expected, Parise (illness) will rejoin the lineup Sunday against the Sharks, Michael Russo of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Parise will look to finish the season strong after a bit of a disappointing season for fantasy owners. He's played just 50 of the Wild's 62 games this season and has notched just 28 points over that span. Minnesota still owns a potent offense, providing Parise with the tools to up his point rate the rest of the way.
Parise (illness) reported that he "fully intends" to play Sunday against the Sharks, Michael Russo reports.
This is a good sign for Parise, who missed three consecutive games due to mumps. The 32-year-old forward matches up well against the Sharks -- in his only meeting with them this year he scored a goal and added two assists. A full confirmation on whether or not Parise will be back should be available Sunday.
Parise (illness) won't play Thursday against the Blue Jackets, Michael Russo of the Star Tribune reports.
Parise will miss a third consecutive game Thursday due to mumps, and a definite timetable for his return to Minnesota's lineup has yet to be established. The Wild really don't have any reason to rush Parise back, as they've been scorching hot offensively without him in the lineup, racking up a total of 11 goals over their past two games. More information regarding Parise's availability for Sunday's game against the Sharks should be released in the coming days.
