Marco Rossi

The Minnesota Wild announced on Sunday that Marco Rossi, who was selected with the ninth overall pick in the 2020 NHL Entry Draft, will be sidelined indefinitely with an upper-body injury.

The exact injury or extent of the injury is unknown at this time, but Rossi was set to join the Wild's training camp after finishing a seven-day quarantine after playing for Austria in the World Junior Ice Hockey Championships.

Rossi put on a strong performance during the WJC, showing the two-way game that makes the 19-year-old a top prospect.

Rossi is one of several players that are building a young nucleus for the Wild along with Kirill Kaprizov, who put on a show of his own during the team's scrimmage on Friday night.

There was a potential scenario where Rossi made the Wild roster, but that seems to be scrapped for now due to the injury. With Rossi being a key piece of the team's future, fans will now wait to see how long before Rossi can return to the ice.
