Minnesota Wild Forward Expected to Miss Multiple Games

The Minnesota Wild will enter this weekend's action shorthanded as forward Mats Zuccarelo is expected to miss both games. 

Zuccarello suffered an upper-body injury during the Wild's matchup against the Tampa Bay Lightning, a game in which the Wild won in impressive fashion 5-1.

The 35-year-old veteran continues to get it done in Minny as he's appeared in 37 games this season, recording 40 points. Zuccarello sits second on the team behind Kirill Kaprizov in scoring, who is now going to be tasked with carrying the load this weekend.
