  • Islanders' Zach Parise: Plays in every game

    Parise was the only player on the Islanders not to miss a game this season.

    This is somewhat impressive as the knock-on Parise has been his inability to stay healthy in the second half of his career. The last time Parise didn't miss a game was during the 2011-12 season, and he had only played more than 70 games twice during that span. Parise finished this season with 15 goals, 35 points, and a rating of minus-2

  • Islanders' Zach Parise: Doesn't miss a game

    Parise was the only player on the Islanders to not miss a game this season.

    This is a big surprise when you consider the knock-on Parise through the years has been that he's brittle and misses too much time. This will be the first time Parise has played more than 74 games in a season since the 2011-12 campaign. Coming into the season's final game, Parise has 15 goals, 34, a rating of minus-2, and has averaged 15:15 of playing time.

  • Islanders' Zach Parise: Opens scoring in third period

    Parise scored a goal on two shots in Friday's 3-0 win over the Canadiens.

    Parise continues to find twine regularly -- this was his fourth goal in the last three games. It also stood as the game-winner Friday, his fourth such goal of the season. The 37-year-old is up to 33 points, 129 shots on net, 51 hits, 51 blocked shots and a minus-1 rating through 74 outings overall.

  • Islanders' Zach Parise: Shines on special teams

    Parise scored two goals on five shots in Tuesday's 5-4 shootout win over Pittsburgh.

    Parise scored a power-play goal followed by a shorthanded goal just 2:53 later to turn a 1-0 deficit into a 2-1 lead in the first. This was Parise's first multi-point performance since March 1, so the 37-year-old winger is unlikely to produce another scoring outburst akin to this one anytime soon. He doubled his season total in both power-play goals and shorthanded goals with this outing.

  • Islanders' Zach Parise: Solid season

    Parise has 11 goals, 17 assists, and a rating of plus-2 in 69 games this season.

    Parise got off to a slow start in his first season with the Islanders but has played better in the second half. Parise is a third-line player at this point in his career and understands his role. He is also defensively responsible, which is a must under head coach Barry Trotz.

  • Islanders' Zach Parise: Signs one-year extension

    Parise agreed to a one-year extension with the Islanders on Monday.

    This move is a bit surprising, as Parise looks to be on his last legs at age 37. The seven-time 60-point scorer has just 24 points through 60 games, but Parise isn't ready to hang up the skates just yet, and Islanders GM Lou Lamariello will be happy to keep him around for another year after they finally reunited this season.

  • Islanders' Zach Parise: Scores first goal of March

    Parise netted a goal in a 4-3 win over the Ducks on Sunday.

    Parise dropped in the first goal of the game, beating John Gibson two minutes into the first period. The veteran left winger has one goal and two assists in seven games in March as part of what has been a second consecutive down year offensively for the former high-end option.

  • Islanders' Zach Parise: Garners pair of helpers

    Parise notched two assists and went plus-3 in Tuesday's 5-3 loss to the Avalanche.

    Parise set up goals by Ryan Pulock and Jean-Gabriel Pageau in this contest. During the Islanders' five-game road trip, Parise compiled three goals and four assists while playing a more advanced role in the lineup. The productive run has him up to 23 points, 80 shots on net and a plus-3 rating in 50 games. With the Islanders headed home for the next six contests, he'll look to keep the momentum going -- he's notched just nine points in 24 home games so far, compared to 14 in 26 on the road.

  • Islanders' Zach Parise: Scores 400th career goal

    Parise scored a goal on three shots, dished an assist and went plus-2 in Thursday's 4-3 shootout loss to the Sharks.

    Parise's second-period tally was the 400th goal of his career, coming in his 1,107th game. He also assisted on an Adam Pelech goal a few minutes later. With six points in his last three outings, Parise is thriving in a top-line role. The 37-year-old has 21 points, 78 shots on net, 18 PIM and a minus-1 rating through 47 contests overall.

  • Islanders' Zach Parise: Pops off with three points

    Parise scored twice on four shots, dished an assist and went plus-3 in Tuesday's 5-2 win over the Kraken.

    Parise's first tally gave the Islanders a 2-0 lead. He also assisted on Kyle Palmieri's second-period marker before scoring an empty-netter in the third. This was Parise's fourth multi-point effort of the season, and his first multi-goal game since Jan. 14, 2020. The winger is now up to six goals, 19 points, 75 shots on net and a minus-3 rating through 46 appearances, surpassing his 18 points in 45 games from last year. He got a look on the top line Tuesday, but it's unclear if he'll continue to see that role Thursday versus the Sharks.

  • Islanders' Zach Parise: Records assist in loss

    Parise notched an assist in Saturday's 5-2 loss to the Flames.

    Parise set up Jean-Gabriel Pageau at 16:50 of the second period, but the Islanders only got within a goal. With six points in his last nine outings, Parise has provided the Islanders with some valuable depth scoring. The 37-year-old's 15 points, 68 shots on net and a minus-2 rating through 42 games aren't much, but he's in good form currently. He adds a little physicality and could help fantasy managers in deep formats.

  • Islanders' Zach Parise: Lights lamp Wednesday

    Parise scored a goal on three shots and blocked two shots in Wednesday's 6-3 win over the Canucks.

    Parise opened the scoring at 3:25 of the first period, and the Islanders quickly established a three-goal lead within 31 seconds. The winger has picked up three goals and two assists in his last seven outings, enjoying a boost in his scoring numbers after a sluggish start to the season. Overall, he has 14 points, 64 shots on net and an even plus-minus rating in 40 games. At 37 years old and in a bottom-six role, Parise isn't likely to help much in fantasy, but he could be worth a look in DFS while his offense is warm.

  • Islanders' Zach Parise: Four points in last six games

    Parise has picked up the offensive pace of late with two goals and two assists in his last six games.

    The days of Parise being a prolific goal scorer are over, as he has potted only 10 goals in his last 84 games. The Islanders signed him to a $750,000 contract for this season, so they weren't expecting huge numbers, but they would still like to see more than 13 points in 39 games. With the Islanders struggling offensively and unlikely to make the playoffs, Parise could lose playing time to younger players like Kieffer Bellows and could even be put on the trade block.

  • Islanders' Zach Parise: Adds more offense

    Parise chipped in a goal and an assist in a 4-3 win over the Flyers on Tuesday.

    Parise beat Martin Jones for the go-ahead goal in this one. The 37-year-old has just three goals and nine assists this season, a similar pace to last season, though it's still a far cry from his play just a few seasons ago. Nonetheless, Parise does have eight points across his last 13 contests.

  • Islanders' Zach Parise: Wrinkles twine

    Parise scored his second goal of the season and the only one for the Islanders in their 3-1 loss to the Maple Leafs on Saturday.

    Parise has been a disappointment for the Isles this season with only those two goals and eight assists in 34 games. The Islanders weren't expecting huge numbers from Parise but were hoping he could provide consistent scoring while playing on the third line. Unfortunately for the Islanders, their two significant free agent additions, Parise and Kyle Palmieri, have only combined for three goals and 14 assists this season. They will need to get much more production from this duo to get back in the playoff hunt.

  • Islanders' Zach Parise: Serves two helpers in win

    Parise contributed two assists in a 3-2 win over the Devils on Thursday.

    Parise really took a step backwards offensively last season and still has not found his groove. Through 29 games, the 37-year-old has just one goal and seven assists.

  • Islanders' Zach Parise: In Thursday's lineup

    Parise has cleared the NHL's COVID-19 protocols and is expected to play Thursday versus the Sabres, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

    Parise entered the protocols Monday, but he's clearly returned two negative tests, which makes him able to return. The 37-year-old will play on the third line, but he shouldn't be expected to make much of an impact on the scoresheet.

  • Islanders' Zach Parise: Enters COVID-19 protocols

    Parise has landed in the league's COVID-19 protocols, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

    The Islanders saw four of their players land on the league's COVID-19 protocols, meaning they will be quite shorthanded when they take on the Red Wings on Dec. 29 -- if the league resumes, that is. The 37-year-old is not the player he once was and might not be relevant in most fantasy formats, though, so his absence might not matter much.

  • Islanders' Zach Parise: Nets first goal of season

    Parise scored his first goal of the season Saturday in a 4-2 win over the Devils.

    Parise's season-long goal drought ended on what would have been his father, J.P.'s 80th birthday. The elder Parise played for the Islanders between 1975-78. Zach's goal came on a shorthanded breakaway after receiving a backhand feed in the neutral zone from Jean-Gabriel Pageau. Parise has just five points in 23 games and is no longer worthy of fantasy consideration.

  • Islanders' Zach Parise: Snags power-play helper

    Parise registered a power-play assist in Saturday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Red Wings.

    Parise helped out on Oliver Wahlstrom's game-tying goal at 12:33 of the third period. The assist was Parise's fourth of the year and his first power-play point as an Islander. The 37-year-old forward has added 34 shots on net and a minus-4 rating in 19 games while logging middle-six minutes, as his lack of offense hasn't justified a more prominent role.
