Parise suffered the injury on Monday night in St. Louis when he blocked a slap shot by Alexander Steen of the Blues.
The team announced Tuesday that Parise is expected to miss 2 to 3 weeks, but he surprised teammates by joining them for the Wild's morning skate on Wednesday.
Parise is Minnesota's leading scorer with 22 points in 25 games. He hadn't missed a game since the 2010-11 season when he played for the New Jersey Devils.
