Wild's Zach Parise: Given green light for World Cup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Parise (back) officially has been cleared to play in the World Cup of Hockey, the Star Tribune reports.

Parise, who missed the postseason with a herniated disc in his back, said in late May that there's "no question" he'll be ready for the international tournament, and it's even more encouraging that the stud winger hasn't had any setbacks while skating or working out this deep in the offseason. Parise opted for an extended rehab rather than undergoing surgery to correct his ailment, with new Wild coach Bruce Boudreau suggesting that Minnesota will give the 32-year-old the occasional day off from practice during the busier times of the upcoming NHL season.

Wild's Zach Parise: Expects to be healthy for 2016-17

Parise (back) said there's "no question" that he'll be available for the World Cup of Hockey in September and the start of the 2016-17 NHL season.

Parise decided against surgery to treat a herniated disk in his back, but nonetheless, the rehab is said to be going well. Minnesota was defeated by Dallas in the conference quarterfinals, a playoff round that Parise was unable to take part in due to his ailing back. Still, with his condition improving and the Wild bringing in Bruce Boudreau as the new coach, it looks like the star forward is well on his way to a fresh start in 2016-17.

Wild's Zach Parise: Avoids back surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zach Parise won't need surgery for the back injury that caused him to miss the playoffs. "I mean the doctors are really happy with the progress I've made so far, and they're not worried about it dragging into next season or being a continual problem," he told the Minneapolis Star Tribune. "You never know, because things can happen, but I'm hoping that after some rehab I'll be in the clear and not have to worry about it anymore."

Parise played last season with a herniated disk that put pressure on a nerve in his lower back. He said he first noticed the injury in January and a hard hit ended his season on April 5. It's good news he's making progress, but we'll have to monitor his progress this summer.

Wild's Zach Parise: Hopes rehab helps avoid surgery
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Parise hopes rehab will be enough to avoid back surgery, Michael Russo of The Star Tribune reports. "It's too early to tell, but I'm optimistic that therapy and the rehab is working really well, that we're going to be able to avoid that," Parise said.

The 31-year-old left winger tallied 53 points (25 goals, 28 assists) in 70 games this season before sustaining a season-ending lower back injury on April 5. Team doctors discovered that Parise was playing with a herniated disk that put pressure on a nerve in his lower back. Despite wanting to avoid surgery and a lengthy post-op rehab, a decision needs to be made soon if he wants to be ready by the start of next season.

Wild's Zach Parise: Week-to-week
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Coach John Torchetti indicated Wednesday that Parise (back) remains week-to-week at this point.

There's been no indication he was making significant progress in his recovery, so it shouldn't come as much of a surprise that Parise's timetable remains pretty open-ended. It's quite possible he's played his last game of the season for the Wild, especially if they don't make it out of the first round. The team will likely update the star winger's status again when he begins moving in the right direction, while the team will likely continue with Mikael Granlund serving on the top line.
