The injury bug continues to bite the Minnesota Wild, as the club is expected be without Zach Parise for 2-3 weeks.

The forward suffered a foot contusion last night against the St. Louis Blues. During the first period, he blocked an Alexander Steen slap shot. He returned for a portion of the second, but left the bench and didn't return. He is the Wild's leading scorer with 22 points (11-11=22).

Tomorrow's game against the Phoenix Coyotes will be the first Parise has missed since signing with Minnesota.
