Parrish had two assists in four preseason games before being cut Friday. He was trying to re-ignite a career that saw him average 26 goals a season for the New York Islanders from 2001- 2006, then sign a five-year, $13.25 million contract in his home state of Minnesota in the summer of 2006.
The 32-year-old Parrish was bought out of that contract after scoring 35 goals over two seasons with the Wild, and scored only eight goals in 44 games with Dallas last year.
Parrish, originally drafted in the third round by Colorado in 1996, has 216 goals and 385 points in 704 career NHL games over 10 seasons.
You can be hyped all you want, but his game will speak for itself. He's obviously going to be a great player so we've got to make sure we keep an eye on him. Whether it's his first game or his 1,000th game, our job is to take care of business, shut him down.
