Devils Re-sign Zach Parise
newjerseydevils.com – The Devils announced today that forward Zach Parise has been re-signed to a new multi-year contract. No further terms of the deal were disclosed.

“Over the past two seasons, Zach has established himself as one of the outstanding young players in the National Hockey League,” Devils' CEO/President/GM Lou Lamoriello said. “We are delighted that he has re-signed a multi-year contract with us.”

Parise, 23, led the Devils last season with 31 goals, a career high. He also set career marks in assists (31), and points (62) while playing in all 82 games of the 2006-07 campaign, his second in the NHL.

The 5-11, 190-lb. left wing didn't miss a beat in the postseason, recording career highs in goals (7), assists (3), and points (10) in 11 playoff contests.

"I'm happy about it, and hopefully [the Devils] are happy about it," Parise said via conference call of his new contract.

"Last year I think I took on more responsibility than in my rookie year, and I hope that moves in the same direction where I can be relied on more and put into different situations and opportunities," he added.

New Jersey's 1st-round selection, 17th overall, in the 2003 Entry Draft, Parise posted 14 goals and 18 assists for 32 points in his rookie season of 2005-06.

The Minneapolis native first signed with the Devils on March 29, 2004, after two seasons at the University of North Dakota.

Zach's father, J.P., played 13 seasons in the NHL with Boston, Toronto, Minnesota, the NY Islanders, and Cleveland. His older brother Jordan was a teammate at UND and played last season at Lowell (AHL).
