PARISE, TEAM USA FACE FINLAND IN WORLD QUARTERFINALS


newjerseydevils.com –
Zach Parise is expected to make his first appearance in the 2007 IIHF World Hockey Championship when Team USA faces Finland in the tournament quarterfinals.

The action at Moscow's Arena Khodynka gets underway this afternoon at 12:15 p.m. EDT.

With a win, the U.S. would face Russia in Saturday's semifinal round. Yesterday, Russia posted a 4-0 win to knock off a Czech Republic team that had reached the final in each of the last two championships, winning a gold-medal in 2005.

Sweden will face Canada in the other semifinal match-up, following the Canadians' 5-1 win over Switzerland this morning.

Parise, a native of Minneapolis, will be making his second IIHF World Championship appearance, having recorded two assists in three games with the U.S. Men's National Team in 2005. He set career-highs in goals (31), assists (31) and points (62) with the Devils this past regular season, and added 10 points in 11 playoff games.

Parise won gold medals with the U.S. National Under-18 Team at the 2002 IIHF World Under-18 Championship and the U.S. National Junior Team at the 2004 IIHF World Junior Championship. He also competed with Team USA at the 2003 IIHF World Junior Championship.
