Zach Parise
In just five seasons, Zach Parise has already established himself as one of the top offensive talents in Devils history. This week, he’s ready to answer your questions in the latest installment of Devils Q&A!

The gifted left winger had a year to remember in 2009-10, scoring 38 goals to become the first Devil ever to record four straight seasons with 30-or-more. He proved clutch at the 2010 Winter Games in Vancouver, scoring the late tally that forced overtime in the gold medal game against Canada.

The Devils' first choice, 17th overall, in 2003, Parise has used his work ethic and offensive savvy to climb the team’s scoring lists. He's been the Devils' top point-getter in three straight seasons, and their top goal-scorer in each of the last four.

Entering his sixth campaign, the 26-year-old is seventh all-time in goals (160), fourth in game-winning goals (33), tied for sixth in even-strength goals (114; Pat Verbeek) and tied for ninth in power-play goals (44; Bobby Holik, Petr Sykora).

After notching 14 goals, 18 assists as a rookie in 2005-06, Parise potted 31 the next season and just keeps getting better. He established career highs with 45 goals, 49 assists for 94 points in 2008-09, coming three goals and two points shy of single-season franchise marks. Last year he tied a club record with his second career six-game goal-scoring streak, and posted a career high with points in 10 straight games.

A leader on and off the ice, Parise was named an alternate captain in training camp and later earned his second straight team MVP award as voted by his teammates. This summer, he took the time to visit the New Jersey State Library in Trenton to read to deaf elementary school students.

On Aug. 18, the Minnesota native was set to take part in batting practice with his hometown Twins at Target Field, the club’s brand-new stadium in Minneapolis. In just a few weeks, the All-Star winger will be back in New Jersey to help the two-time defending Atlantic Division-champion Devils open the 2010-11 season on Oct. 8.
