ST. PAUL, Minn. — Min­nesota Wild left wing Zach Parise is be­ing held out of the be­gin­ning of train­ing camp be­cause of a back in­jury.

Parise was not on the ice Fri­day for the first prac­tice. His sta­tus is con­sid­ered day to day. Coach Bruce Boudreau said he doesn’t be­lieve Parise’s con­di­tion is se­ri­ous. He said the team is be­ing “overly pre­cau­tious.’’ Parise had 19 goals and 23 as­sists in 69 games in 201617, his low­est points to­tal in a non-lock­out sea­son since his rookie year with New Jersey. Parise missed the play­offs af­ter the 2015-16 sea­son be­cause of a back in­jury.
