 ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - Zach Parise and Ryan Suter are finally going to work for the Minnesota Wild.
The two big free-agent signings pulled on Wild sweaters for the first time on Monday during an informal practice with 16 of their new teammates. Parise and Suter signed matching 13-year, $98 million deals in July only to have to sit on the sideline during the NHL lockout. The owners and players came to an agreement on a new deal on Sunday, allowing the two stars to hit the ice at Xcel Energy Center a day later.
Suter says it's been a rollercoaster since he first decided to leave Nashville and sign with Minnesota.
Both stars say the league and the players need to apologize to fans for putting them through another labor dispute.
