When Zach Parise chose to sign with the Minnesota Wild in July 2012, it was an exciting time to be a Minnesota Wild fan. The hometown boy was coming back to the state of hockey to help bring a cup to the frequently let down fanbase. The goal-scoring forward had consistently put the puck in the net in previous years, breaking the thirty-goal benchmark in five of his previous seven seasons. Fast forward nine years and the now 35 year old veteran has eclipsed 30 goals only once, with four full remaining seasons at a cap hit of $7,538,461 AAV. This was largely due to health issues sidelining the high level player. Without these health issues, Parise would have been likely to reach more respectable goal totals. However, the former Devils captain play has come into question recently. In 25 games this season, the left wing has scored three goals and assisted on nine for a total of 12 points Joel Eriksson Ek Face Mask. Additionally, he was recently scratched by coach Dean Evason and has his lowest Corsi For percentage, 43.0, since entering the league. This is all while being the highest paid forward on the Wild by a margin of $1,538,461. To make matters more complex, the structure of his contracts has brought about the threat of cap recapture penalties in the event of an early retirement. In the defense of the hard-working winger, his line pairing have fluctuated frequently, often leaving him without a true number one or two center A problem faced by all wingers on the top Wild lines. He has had less support and less ice time when compared to previous years. The former UND forward has also posted a shooting percentage of only 5.6%, the lowest of his career. This, combined with the lack of power play time and success that has helped him put up numbers in the previous years of his career, suggests that he may be getting unlucky. Hopefully, he will return to his normal self. If not, the Minnesota Wild have an issue.
