Zach Parise LW MIN 10 Days

Parise set up a pair of goals in Friday's 4-0 triumph over the Oilers.The two apples brings Parise's ledger to 44 points in 51 games this season, as he's very much been as-advertised on a Wild squad that has had some extreme highs and lows. This was also his 10th multi-point effort of the season, making him easily the sexiest fantasy option in the State of Hockey. Look for the 30-year-old to ramp things up even further as the Wild have clawed back into the playoff race and now sit one point behind San Jose for the final wild card spot.

Parise picked up a power-play assist, but took a minus-3 rating in Monday's win over the Canucks.Parise found himself on the ice for all three of the Canucks' goals on the evening, putting a small damper on an otherwise strong showing by the Wild forwards.

Parise was the whole of the Minnesota offense Thursday, scoring his 20th of the year in the first period to provide the difference in a 1-0 win over Calgary.

And so Parise reaches 20 goals for the seventh time in his career. Assuming he stays healthy, this should also end up as his sixth 30-goal campaign. He's on a goal-per-game pace over the last six.

Parise powered the Wild to a third-period comeback Tuesday, scoring a pair of goals -- one on the power play to draw within 4-2, the other at even strength to tie the game -- in an eventual 5-4 shootout loss to Detroit.

Unfortunately, Parise ended up missing on his shootout attempt. But that's forgivable when you've put five pucks home over the course of a four-game goal streak, as he has.

Parise notched a goal in Monday's loss to the Blue Jackets.

After recently missing time following the passing of his father, Parise has returned to active duty and hasn't seemed to miss a beat. He's recorded goals in three straight games, while attempting for or more shots in each contest.

Parise snapped a three-game scoring drought with a goal and an assist in Thursday's 7-0 rattling of the Sabres.

Parise hadn't found the scoresheet in three games since returning to the ice following the untimely death of his father, J.P., and it's hard to blame him. The multi-point effort was his first since Dec. 20.

Parise (personal) will return to the Minnesota lineup Saturday against the Predators, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

After consulting with his wife following the death of his father, J.P., on Thursday, Parise decided it was best for him to rejoin the team Friday in an attempt to regain a sense of normalcy. The Wild plan to stick with the top-line trio they used during his two-game absence (Jason Zucker, Mikko Koivu, and Jason Pominville), so Parise will find himself next to new mates in Erik Haula and Thomas Vanek on the second line in his return. Despite the turmoil in his personal life, Parise has delivered his usual excellence for the Wild this season, tallying 14 goals and 16 assists over 32 games.

Parise didn't stick around to take part in the team's full session, but did fire off some shots. He's scheduled to meet with the media later Friday for the first time since the death of his father, J.P. Parise should indicate during that time when exactly he plans on returning to active duty for the Wild.

Parise will not play in Tuesday's game against the Sharks.

The news came down minutes before the Wild were about to begin pregame warmups, with the team's public relations staff releasing a statement on behalf of Parise. With his father, J.P., dealing with complications from lung cancer, Parise left the team to be at his side. Expect the Wild to give him as much time off as he needs to attend to the matter, making his return date indefinite for the time being.
