Gaborik comes off injured list
Minnesota will have its career scoring leader back in the lineup Wednesday night for the first time since Oct. 14.
He has missed 27 games because of a lower-body injury the Wild haven't identified.
Gaborik began practicing with the team a week ago and deemed himself "good to go" after Tuesday's workout.
The Wild could use some scoring from their speedy right wing: Their 76 goals are fewest in the Western Conference.
