The New York Islanders played host to one of the NHL's best veterans a season ago, and ever since that point, people have been questioning where the future of Zach Parise lays.
When asked about his future over the weekend, Islanders General Manager Lou Lamoriello revealed that Parise won't start training camp with the team again, but left the door open to a reunion down the line.
Lou Lamoriello says Zach Parise will not come to camp with the #Isles. Did not rule out something later in the season but says Parise is home in Minnesota.
At 39-years of age, Parise has given everything he can to the NHL, playing in 1224 games for New York, the Minnesota Wild and the New Jersey Devils, and now, Lamoriello may have given away his future.
A veteran star
Over that lengthy stint in the NHL, Parise has tallied 429 goals and 879 points, while being nominated to one All-Star game, but after 21 goals and 34 points a season ago, he may have some gas left in the tank.
Regardless, it appears he won't be signing with a team anytime soon, as he is back in his native Minnesota for now, but if he gets a call when the season begins, don't be surprised to see Parise lace them up one last time at the top level.
WILL PARISE PLAY IN THE NHL AGAIN?
