Sport Zach Parise fractures sternum, listed as week-to-week
Ducks look to move closer to playoffs
The race to the playoffs continues for two Western Conference rivals Wednesday night as the Anaheim Ducks host the Minnesota Wild. Minnesota's home win Monday night clinched their postseason spot. For Anaheim, the playoffs are not yet confirmed.
The injuries just keep piling up for the Minnesota Wild,that has suffered a fractured sternum and will be out on a week-to-week basis. that it will be six to eight weeks for the Minnesota forward, which likely takes him out for the remainder of the playoffs.
The Wild were already missing, perhaps the most important player on their team, and will now have to go with one of their most important forwards. Parise has had a tough season, dealing with a back injury through the first half only to now be taken out again. He played in just 45 games total but had three goals in the playoffs already and is a capable two-way player.
Eagles fans want TE Goedert to change first name
South Dakota State tight end Dallas Goedert was pleased to be picked by the Philadelphia Eagles in the 2018 NFL Draft, but that doesn't mean he plans to change his first name. Goedert was named by his parents who were fans of the Dallas Cowboys.
Even if Minnesota climbs out of the 2-1 series deficit, it seems unlikely that Parise will be back at all this postseason. That means the team will have to rely on other forwards for offense, something it might have to get used to going forward. The 33-year-old winger has seen his point totals decline in three consecutive seasons, and if he can’t stay healthy it’s unlikely he’ll ever get back to the dynamic force he was in his youth.
Unfortunately, Parise is still under contract for another seven seasons at a cap hit of $7.5MM and a full no-movement clause. That deal, signed before the last CBA negotiations, would cause cap recapture penalties if he were to retire early. There’s no doubt that Parise is still an impactful player when healthy, but he’ll have to find some luck in that department if the Wild are to get fair value out of the rest of his contract.
