The Minnesota Wild will be without star forward Zach Parise for at least 2-3 weeks as he recovers from a bruised foot suffered in Monday's loss to St. Louis.

Parise injured the foot in the first period of the game Monday, tried to play through it, but was forced to leave the game after the second period. He leads Minnesota with 22 points through 25 games.

The Wild are back in action Wednesday night when they host the Phoenix Coyotes at Xcel Energy Center (6:30 pm, 1390 The Fan).
