Defenceman Marek Zidlicky returns to Minnesota Wild lineup after 21-game absence

ST. PAUL, Minn. - Defenceman Marek Zidlicky has rejoined the Minnesota Wild lineup for Friday night's game against the Anaheim Ducks.

Zidlicky missed the past 21 games after separating his shoulder Dec. 29. It was his third time out with injury this season—he missed two games in October with a groin injury and four in November with a lower body injury.

Considered one of the team's top offensive defencemen, Zidlicky had four goals and 16 assists in 30 games before his latest injury.
