Gaborik was hurt in the third period of Friday's game at Anaheim and did not play Saturday against San Jose. Gaborik is second on the team with four goals and also has three assists. He's been skating on a line with fellow Slovakia native Pavol Demitra, who was acquired in an offseason trade.

The Wild, whose 7-1 record is tied with Dallas for the best in the Western Conference, host Los Angeles on Wednesday.
