AUG 4, 2021  (16H56)      COOPER GODIN
Following a lengthy battle with Myocarditis, Minnesota Wild prospect Marco Rossi will return to game action this month according to Scott Wheeler of The Athletic. Rossi will be joining up with the Austrian national team and play for them in their Olympic qualification tournament later this month.

"I can confirm that Marco Rossi (MIN) will play for Austria in their Olympic qualification games in Bratislava from August 26-29. He wanted games before Wild camp. Austria's camp starts August 16 and also includes two exhibitions against Hungary and Italy August 21/22. He's back," Wheeler said in a tweet on Wednesday afternoon.

Rossi, 19, was diagnosed with COVID-19 in late 2020, but recovered in time to play, and captain Austria at the 2021 World Juniors. Following the tournament, he flew to Minnesota and underwent a physical with Wild team doctors where it was discovered that he was dealing with Myocarditis, which is inflammation of the heart muscle.

Austria will play against the hosts Slovakia, Belarus, and Poland in their Olympic qualification tournament. The winner of the round-robin tournament will advance to the 2022 Winter Olympics in Beijing, China.

Following the tournament, Rossi will head to Minnesota to prepare for training camp and the 2021-22 NHL season.
