The Colorado Avalanche announced on Friday that they have signed Zach Parise for the rest of the season. At 39 years of age, Parise provides the experience that the Avalanche needs in order to boost their secondary scoring.

“We’re excited to add Zach to our group,” Avalanche general manager Chris MacFarland. “Over his impressive NHL career, Zach has always been a highly competitive and driven forward who is hard to play against. We look forward to adding his veteran presence to our locker room.”

Although Parise has never won a Stanley Cup, joining the Avalanche may provide him with an opportunity to achieve this feat as he helps Colorado pursue their second Stanley Cup title in three seasons. After defeating the Los Angeles Kings 5-1, the Avalanche remain top of the Central Division in the Eastern Conference.
