Wild Return: Marian Gaborik to Play as Early as Sunday vs. Oilers

Nick MaxsonCorrespondent IMarch 19, 2009

According to Wild.com writer Ryan Stanzel, Marian Gaborik will participate in Friday morning's skate, and has reported to the team that he is aiming to return to the lineup for Sunday's home game against Edmonton.

Gaborik reportedly has been practicing on a line with Peter Olvecky and Dan Fritsche.

This could be the boost Minnesota needs to grab a spot in the Western Conference playoffs. Minnesota, currently in ninth place, is one point behind eighth-place Edmonton and two points behind seventh-place Nashville.

The Wild will travel to New Jersey to face the Devils on Friday night before returning to St. Paul to play the Oilers on Sunday.
