The Minnesota Wild will be without Zach Parise for the foreseeable future, as the veteran forward suffered a fractured sternum in Game 3 against the Winnipeg Jets and is expected to be out six-to-eight weeks, sources told Michael Russo of The Athletic.

Parise is not expected to require surgery and will be replaced in Minnesota's lineup by Tyler Ennis.

The 33-year-old was limited to just 42 games in the regular season after undergoing back surgery in October, and managed 15 goals and nine assists when healthy.

Through three games in the postseason, Parise had recorded three goals and his absence will surely be felt going forward, particularly as the Wild look to erase a 2-1 series deficit Tuesday night in Game 4.
