Minnesota Wild forward Zach Parise on Wednesday skated on his own for 45 minutes at the team’s practice facility – his first skate since having non-invasive surgery October 24th, to relieve pain and discomfort in his back and leg.
Parise skated with the team’s skating coach.
"It's almost as if everything kind of came back toward the end of the skate," Parise said, "and everything felt pretty smooth. Most importantly, nothing hurt. So it was a really good day, a really good sign, and then, kind of keep progressing, get a little more advanced tomorrow and the following day, and then go from there."
It’s unknown when the former UND standout will return. Parise has yet to play a game in this regular season.
