In making the announcement late Friday afternoon, Devils president and general manager Lou Lamoriello said the two sides were continuing to work on a multiyear deal.
The Devils had filed for arbitration with Parise in June. The hearing had been set for Aug. 3.
Parise earned $5 million last season, a year in which he was limited to 13 games and three goals by a knee injury that required surgery. He had been the catalyst of the Devils’ offense the previous four seasons, scoring 146 goals.
