EDINA, Minn. -- Minnesota Wild left wing Zach Parise has been rehabilitating his back injury without surgery, putting him on track to be at full strength by September.

Parise said Thursday he's "happy with the way everything's going." He said he's been able to work out as he normally does during the summer, despite missing the playoffs because of the injury.

Parise said there's "no question" he'll be ready to play for Team USA in the World Cup of Hockey tournament.
