Zuccarello and Pitlick set to return ahead of Sunday’s game

The Minnesota Wild will gain a boost in the first action they’ll have against former franchise cornerstone Zach Parise and his new team, the New York Islanders.

Mats Zuccarello and Rem Pitlick cleared COVID protocol on Friday, but did not travel to join the team for their thrilling matchup against the Pittsburgh Penguins last night. But they will be active for tonight's game against the Islanders, their first match since 2019, in the Before Times.

The #mnwild today activated Rem Pitlick and Mats Zuccarello from NHL COVID-19 Protocol and reassigned Adam Beckman and Connor Dewar to @IAWild.
