Parenteau agreed to a one-year contract with the Islanders on Saturday. Parenteau is familiar with the Isles, having played with the club between 2010-12. In fact, those two seasons have been the most productive of his eight-year career thus far, as he had been positioned on the top line with John Tavares and recorded 120 points in 161 games. He'll see a huge surge in fantasy value if that's a similar arrangement in the upcoming campaign.
Parenteau scored a goal on two shots but finished a minus-1 in 14:01 of ice time in a 5-1 loss to the Devils. Parenteau reached the 20-goal plateau for only the second time in his career. The 33-year-old has had a pretty balanced season, posting 21 assists to go along with his 20 goals. But, the Leafs had little offensive help for the winger all season.
Parenteau registered a power-play goal on four shots in Tuesday's 5-2 win over Florida. Parenteau stopped his three-game scoreless streak, picking up goal No. 100 for his career. The 33-year-old now has three markers in March to go along with three assists, which is decent, but the winger has tried to salvage the slow month with 14 minutes spent in the box.
Parenteau potted a goal in Monday's win over the Flames. He also picked up a plus-3 rating for the second game in a row, bumping him up to plus-4 on the season. Parenteau has five points in the last five games and sits just two goals away from matching his career best of 20.
Parenteau scored an empty-net goal against the Lightning on Tuesday. Hopefully seeing the puck cross the goal line will get the well-traveled winger going again, as he hadn't lit the lamp since Feb. 25 coming into this one. Parenteau's recent struggles could be due to skating on a line with rookies William Nylander and Zach Hyman, although both youngsters possess enough offensive capabilities to put the veteran in a strong position to score.
