The man is the definition of toughness: Wild forward Zach Parise, who took a puck to his left foot in Monday's loss in St. Louis, is back. He's in the lineup for Friday's game at the "X" vs. Colorado.

The Wild announced on Tuesday that Parise was expected to miss 2-3 weeks. But he skated with the team on Wednesday, and again the last two days. After getting through warmups OK on Friday, he took the ice on the first line with Charlie Coyle and Mikko Koivu.
