From Bad To Worse: Zach Parise Out 3 Months With Torn Meniscus

The Devils hellish season continued today, as Zach Parise joined a growing list of players on the injured list.

Parise, who underwent exploratory arthroscopic surgery yesterday on his injured right knee, had surgery today to repair a torn meniscus and will miss three months.

Parise initially injured the knee while skating during the offseason, but believed he could play through the injury. The knee got worse, and it seemed like Parise aggravated the injury when he fell after a collision with the Los Angeles Kings’ Kyle Clifford on Saturday and sat out the third period.

Parise and Devils’ general manager Lou Lamoriello took the red eye back to New Jersey after the game.

The Devils’ left-winger never played fewer than 81 games in a season and had missed only one game in his career due to injury before Monday night’s game.

This is another blow to an already weakened Devils team. The punchless Devils now lose one of their top scorers, energy men and leaders in the locker room. With the Devils lacking finish, the injury to Parise won’t provide a solution.

But as they say: When it rains, it pours.
