newjerseydevils.com – Devils forward Zach Parise has been named to the Eastern Conference All-Star reserves, the National Hockey League announced today.

Parise, 24, is tied with Patrik Elias for the team points lead (46) and has scored a club-high 22 goals. With his assist against the New York Rangers on Dec. 27, the fourth-year left wing became the sixth-fastest Devil to reach 200 points from the start of his career (278 games).

Parise led the Devils with 32 goals and 65 points last season, his second straight with 30-or-more tallies. He notched a team-high 31 goals in 2006-07.

It is the first All-Star honor for Parise, who was named MVP of the NHL YoungStars Game in 2007. He notched the game-determining shootout goal for Team PlanetUSA against Team Canada in the 2005 AHL All-Star Game. 

The 57th NHL All-Star Game will take place on Sunday, Jan. 25 at the Bell Centre in Montreal.

Parise would become the fifth player among the current Devils to make an All-Star appearance.

Martin Brodeur leads the way with nine (1996-2001, 2003, 2004, 2007), while Patrik Elias (2000, 2002) and Bobby Holik (1998, 1999) have each played in two. Brian Rolston made his lone All-Star appearance in 2007 while with Minnesota, scoring two goals and two assists for the Western Conference.

This will mark just the third time since 1992 that the Devils send one player to the All-Star Game. Scott Stevens was the only Devil in the '92 contest at Philadelphia, and repeated as New Jersey's lone representative at Madison Square Garden in 1994.

Elias skated as the only Devil at Los Angeles in 2002. Former Devil Brian Rafalski was named but unable to participate due to a knee injury.

Despite Rafalski sitting out, the Devils had seen multiple players selected in every season from 1996 to 2007. Brodeur was the only Devil added to the Eastern Conference team last season but did not play.

Stevens' 10 All-Star appearances as a Devil is a team record, followed by Brodeur. Former Devil Kirk Muller appeared in five, including four in a row from 1985-88.
