Minnesota Wild top prospect Marco Rossi won't play this season due to COVID


According to Michael Russo of The Athletic, the Minnesota Wild's top prospect Marco Rossi has "returned home to Austria and acknowledged for the first time that what kept him off the ice during training camp and beyond this month is complications due to having COVID-19 in November".

There are presently no concerns for Rossi's long-term health but the plan is that he will not return to the team this season.

As it stands now, Rossi will return to Minnesota to be assessed by team doctors in six weeks but until then it is strictly rest and recovery at home for the 19-year old.
