Zach Parise signs with Wild
Parise, who scored 31 goals and amassed 69 points for New Jersey during the regular season, will take his talents to his hometown Minnesota in a multi-year deal. The Wild also sign Ryan Suter, who was one of the most coveted free agent prizes in the NHL this off-season.
This is a big blow to the Devils, who were hopeful that Parise would return to New Jersey, but not for a record deal, as the Newark-based hockey team is going through financial difficulty.
The Devils now have to turn to plan B, which could signing free agent Alex Semin.
