More to Come from Parise

From Rich Chere at the Star-Ledger,

Parise’s story has been well-documented. The son of former NHL player J.P. Parise, he was bypassed by his father’s old team, the Islanders, in the 2003 entry draft. The Devils picked him 17th overall, and both the Islanders and their fans have agonized over the decision ever since.

After leading the Devils with 31 goals last season, his sophomore season in the NHL, Parise is regarded as one of the league’s rising young stars. This past summer the Devils signed him to a four-year, $12.5 million contract and it figures to be a bargain if he does what everyone believes he will do.

“He can be one of the best players in the league,” right winger Brian Gionta said. “He’s a young guy still (23). He broke out last year, but there is still a lot to be seen from Zach. He has a lot of skill, he works hard and he has a nose for the net.”
