Wild's Nick Schultz out for rest of season with post-concussion symptoms

ST. PAUL, Minn. - The Minnesota Wild say defenceman Nick Schultz will miss the rest of the season with post-concussion symptoms.

Schultz was injured in December and has been dealing with concussion-related issues ever since.

The Wild also announced Saturday defenceman Marek Zidlicky would miss Minnesota's game against the Lightning as well as Sunday's at Detroit with a lower-body injury.

Minnesota entered Saturday's game against Tampa Bay 10 points out of the final playoff spot in the Western Conference with five games left.
