Parise activated from IR, could play Sunday; Brodin put on IR


The Minnesota Wild have activated Zach Parise from injured reserve, which could mean he'll play Sunday when the Wild host the Winnipeg Jets, the Star Tribune says.

Parise missed the last five games after suffering a concussion on Nov. 4 against the Pittsburgh Penguins, the Wild said Sunday. The left wing has 10 points this season.

The Wild also placed defenseman Jonas Brodin on injured reserve to make room on the roster. He's missed two games due to illness, the Wild says.

The team has been dealing with suspected cases of the mumps. Keith Ballard tested positive for the mumps earlier this year, and Christian Folin had similar symptoms.

FOX 9 says Brodin and Marco Scandella didn't play Thursday, noting they also had mump-like symptoms.

The infection seems to be spreading in the NHL. reported two Anaheim Ducks players have been diagnosed with the viral infection and the St. Louis Blues already had it go through their locker room.

“It starts with one person, and then it’s passed very quickly through water bottles, or a towel, or whatever, the shower floor,” Blues head coach Ken Hitchcock told Michael Russo of the Star Tribune. “It just goes, like ‘right now,’ goes zipping through your team.”
