  • After suffering from a COVID-19 diagnosis in November, coming out of quarantine in Switzerland to go represent your country at the 2021 World Junior Championships, feeling “exhausted” while you do so, and then to be out from your first NHL training camp with an upper-body injury, Marco Rossi has been through a ton. The Wild’s top prospect will not be playing hockey this year because he is still experiencing complications from his diagnosis and is putting his long-term health as his top priority.
