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.
