Zach Parise


Zach Parise

came home to Minnesota several years ago and gave the Wild instant credibility. Parise played like an ELITE NHL forward this year. Parise had 29 goals and 27 assists for the Wild. He led the Wild over the Avalanche and took the Blackhawks to the brink. Hockey News stats that Parise “is an Elite scorer with a great work ethic”.
