The Wild made the move on Tuesday before they played the Florida Panthers, reassigning right wing Zack Mitchell to their AHL affiliate to make room on the roster.

The 33-year-old Parise underwent microdiskectomy surgery on his lower back on Oct. 24, to alleviate leg pain and weakness the injury was causing. Parise, who's in his sixth season with the Wild after signing a 13-year, $98 million contract, had 19 goals and 23 assists in 69 games last season.
