U.S. gets Parise for world championship

TSN.ca Staff

5/4/2005

Two-time U.S. National Junior Team member Zach Parise will join the U.S. Men's National Team at the IIHF Men's World Championship in Austria.

Parise, a first round pick of the New Jersey Devils in the 2003 National Hockey League Entry Draft, recently completed the 2004-05 season with the Devils' top American Hockey League affiliate, the Albany River Rats.

In his professional debut, Parise finished second on the team in scoring with 58 points (18-40) in 73 games.

Prior to joining the River Rats, Parise played two seasons of NCAA Division I college hockey at the University of North Dakota (2002-04), while also representing the United States at both the 2003 and 2004 IIHF World Junior Championships.

After leading the U.S. National Junior Team to a fourth-place finish at the 2003 IIHF World Junior Championship with four goals and four assists, Parise was named the tournament MVP in 2004 with 11 points (5-6) as Team USA won its first-ever gold medal in the event. In addition, he joined the U.S. National Under-18 Team for the 2002 IIHF World Under-18 Championship, where he helped the United States to the first gold medal by any U.S. team in an A-Pool IIHF World Championship since 1933.

Parise will join the U.S. Men's National Team in Austria on Thursday.

Are you kidding me. I am not sitting watching a computer screen for hours.

Is ESPN not covering this?

IIHF would only sell the games as a whole package and not just the US and Canadian games and no network was willing to pony up for that IMO. At least thats what I read in the article on why MSG and FSNY wouldn't be showing it.

No ESPN said they had "scheduling conflicts". Morons.

They were reluctent to sandwich it between senior wheelchair bowling & strongest dwarf challenge in nepal.

If I've offended anyone, I'm sorry. ;)

Welp, I'm not sure that I'll watch the game myself. All the games are either at 10am or 2pm. I mean, hockey is THE game here obviously, so people know the score before they leave work. I mean, guys will be yelling the score over the cubicle dividers. And I have a hard time watching a game when I know what the score is going to be.
