newjerseydevils.com – Things just keep looking up for Zach Parise.

After two straight years of career highs, including back-to-back 30-goal campaigns, it's hard to imagine how things could be any better for the Devils' forward, who recently completed his third National Hockey League season.

Parise took major strides in his junior year, potting 32 goals and 33 assists for 65 points. He led the Devils in scoring for the first time, while eclipsing his previous career highs set in '06-07 (31g-31a-62pts).

The Minneapolis native was also chosen to wear the alternate captain's 'A' for Team USA at the 2008 IIHF World Championship, showing just how far New Jersey's young star has risen since being selected with the Devils' first choice, 17th overall, in the 2003 Entry Draft.

There's no reason to believe that Parise won't continue taking steps forward when the puck drops on the new season this October. Until then, NJD TV presents some of Parise's highlights from the last year.

Parise has recorded back-to-back 30-goal seasons.
October 17 at Pittsburgh: His third multipoint performance in four games helped lift the Devils to consecutive wins. The left wing rounded out a three-assist night with a brilliant set up of Arron Asham's game-winning tally in the third period. New Jersey edged Pittsburgh 5-4 at Mellon Arena.

November 17 at Philadelphia:
With his fifth multipoint game through the first 20 games of the season, Parise fuels New Jersey's 6-2 romp of the Flyers. It was the first victory of what would become the Devils' season-high nine-game winning streak.

January 22 at Philadelphia:
New Jersey notched its fifth-straight win against the Flyers on the strength of two more goals by Parise. He scored on the power play in the second period and at even strength just 32 seconds into the third as the Devils handed Philadelphia a 7-3 drubbing at Wachovia Center.

February 4 vs. Pittsburgh:

February 23 vs. NY Islanders:
A five-game goal-scoring streak extended Parise's point streak to a season-high six games (5g-2a). He had a goal and an assist versus New York to lead the Devils to a 4-2 triumph.

March 8 at Toronto:
Parise extended a run of five goals in three games with a pair against the host Maple Leafs. After burning Toronto twice on March 4, Parise returned for two more just four days later, collecting his 29th and 30th of the campaign in a 2-1 win at Air Canada Centre.

Goal No. 30 broke a 1-1 tie with just 49 seconds left in regulation, and the Devils completed a four-game sweep of their season series with the Leafs.

April 1 at NY Islanders:
Parise struck 29 seconds into overtime for his 32nd of the season, tying Patrik Elias with a team-high eight game winners. New Jersey's 2-1 OT victory at Nassau Coliseum was its second in the final three games of the season series against the Islanders.

April 6 vs. NY Rangers:
  The Devils got the point they needed to clinch home ice in the first round of the playoffs by virtue of a 2-2 regulation tie versus New York. But Parise came through in the clutch, extending the shootout as New Jersey got its first win of the season against the Rangers, 3-2. One of Parise's signature moments from '07-08.
