Zach Parise Will Miss Tuesday’s Game


The Minnesota Wild just announced that Zach Parise will miss Tuesday’s game against the San Jose Sharks in order to be with his family as his dad, J.P. Parise, battles lung cancer.

Terrible to hear. Our best to the whole Parise family.

Full statement from the team in tweet below.

Here’s an update from Michael Russo on J.P. Parise’s situation that ran in Monday’s Star Tribune.

And here’s a nice post from Giles Ferrell at Wild Xtra about what really matters. (Hint: It’s not sport.)
