Minnesota Wild winger Zach Parise has suffered a fractured sternum. In terms of a fractured sternum you always have to be concerned about underlying cardiac contusion. Roughly 10% of sternum fractures result in cardiac contusions. With 6-8 weeks RTP, the Wild would have to make it to Eastern Conference Finals or possibly even the Stanley Cup Finals for Parise to have a chance at playing.

My name is Eric Friedman and I'm originally from New York. I am a big New York sports fan including the Giants, Mets, Knicks, and Rangers. I played multiple sports in high school including baseball, basketball, and tennis. I went down south after high school and attended Wake Forest University, where I majored in health and exercise science and minored in Biology. I stayed for medical school and graduated from Wake Forest School of Medicine. Now, I am living in Baltimore where I work as an emergency medicine resident at the University of Maryland and Shock Trauma. I plan to go to sports medicine fellowship afterwards due to my love of sports and helping athletes get healthy and back on the field. I have worked at multiple sports medicine clinics and have published research about achilles tendon tears. I am on twitter @sportsinjuryMD
