Minnesota Wild forward Zach Parise is back on the ice at a 4-on-4 summer league this week and looking to put the injuries that cut his 2017-18 season short behind him.

Parise, who played in a game situation Wednesday as part of "Da Beauty League," which features NHL players with ties to Minnesota, said he is "cleared to do everything" after playing in only 42 games last season. In addition to a fractured sternum sustained in the first round of the playoffs in April, Parise didn't make his season debut until January following back surgery.

"I'm hoping that no one's hitting out there, but I feel good," Parise said, according to NHL.com. "It's good to get back out there. I feel fine."

Parise said the sternum injury healed on its own and he felt better the week after Minnesota's season ended. He said he hopes to continue his normal offseason training and be ready for next season.

When he was healthy last season, Parise scored 15 goals and nine assists. The 33-year-old has 333 goals and 352 assists for his 13-year career, six times scoring more than 30 goals in a season.
