New coach won't put me off my game, Parise says

  • Print
NEW JERSEY Devils sniper Zach Parise doesn't expect the defensive zeal of new head coach Jacques Lemaire will stifle his game.

"You look at a guy like (Marian) Gaborik in Minnesota, it looked like he always did pretty well," Parise told the Bergen Record. "He always put up good numbers there (under Lemaire). So I don't think anybody is going to be held back, by any means. I don't think anybody is going to be held back from their strength. I just have a hard time believing that would be the way it is. Just looking at a guy like Gaborik, he scored 40-something goals in a year. So, hopefully, the offence will still be there."

Parise cracked the 40-goal mark for the first time in his career last season, potting 45 goals and adding 49 assists in 82 games. He scored 32 and 31 goals the two previous seasons.

Winger, defenceman sign

Winger Tom Kostopoulos has agreed to a three-year contract with the Carolina Hurricanes worth US$2.75 million. He had eight goals and 14 assists in 78 games with the Montreal Canadiens last season... The Calgary Flames confirmed the signing of free agent defenceman Staffan Kronwall to a two-year contract worth $1 million. He suited up for three games with the Washington Capitals last season... According to the Arizona Republic, the city of Glendale, Ariz., has spent almost US$230,000 in legal and other fees trying to keep the Phoenix Coyotes.
