P.A. Parenteau scored a goal in Friday's 4-2 loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Parenteau found the back of the net with under four minutes remaining in the third period and his team trailing 4-0. The veteran winter has scored six goals in 10 games since being a healthy scratch last month. The 33-year-old is up to 12 goals and 18 points in 38 games.

PA Parenteau is picking up steam with his goal over the Capitals during Thursday's 2-1 shootout win.

Parenteau's tally gives him goals in consecutive games, with points in three of his last four games as well. He has six goals and 16 points in 34 games in all this season.

P. A. Parenteau found the back of the net in Tuesday's 5-2 loss to Pittsburgh.

Parenteau has been in a pattern of scoring in every other contest for eight straight games. At this point he has nine goals and 15 points in 33 games this season. That's not great, but it might be doing well enough to generate some interest on the trade market as we approach closer to that point. With the Devils already looking like a long shot to make the playoffs, it will be interesting to see if they can get anything in return for Parenteau after claiming him off waivers from the Islanders before the season started.

P. A. Parenteau will be a healthy scratch on Thursday.

That's somewhat surprising, especially seeing as Parenteau is only a game removed from a three-game point streak. "There are certain things you need to do," Devils coach John Hynes said. "First of all for our team, we have to play the game the right way. We have to play a two-way game. Every player in the lineup has to win puck battles, has to forecheck, has to backcheck, has to be responsible in our defensive zone, has to win more puck battles. Those are things, whether it’s guys that are out of the lineup today or even some guys in the lineup, they haven’t been doing it as much as we need them to be and stick to how we want to play systematically." The Devils didn't do line rushes during Thursday's practice, but recent call up Luke Gazdic is drawing into the lineup while Pavel Zacha (mouth) is returning.

P.A. Parenteau scored a goal in Friday's 4-1 loss to the St. Louis Blues.

Parenteau cut the Blues' lead to 2-1 at the 6:36 mark of the second period and snapped a 14-game goal drought in the process. Taylor Hall and Adam Henrique picked up the assists on the Devils' only goal. The 33-year-old has six goals and five assists in 27 games this season. He doesn't have any value in most fantasy leagues.
Sat, Dec 10, 2016 12:06:00 AM

P.A. Parenteau scored a goal in Tuesday's 3-2 shootout win over the Carolina Hurricanes.

Parenteau opened the scoring at the 16:50 mark of the first period. He also added the game-winning goal in the first-round of the shootout. The veteran has surprisingly filled the net so far this season. He already has five goals and one assist in 12 games this season. Nick Lappin also scored for the Devils.

P. A. Parenteau scored a goal in the Devils' 4-3 overtime loss to Florida on Thursday.

Parenteau has been on a pattern of scoring a goal in every other game for five straight contests now. He's up to four goals and five points in nine games this season.
Fri, Nov 4, 2016 10:38:00 AM

P.A. Parenteau scored a power play goal in Friday's 3-2 OT loss to the Chicago Blackhawks.

Parenteau opened the scoring at the 15:32 mark of the first period. He's now scored two goals in his last three contests. John Moore also found the back of the net for the Devils. The 33-year-old has three goals and four points in seven games this season. He doesn't have any fantasy value in standard leagues.
Fri, Oct 28, 2016 11:29:00 PM

P. A. Parenteau skated on New Jersey's second power-play unit on Friday.

He replaced Jacob Josefson alongside Yohann Auvitu, Mike Cammalleri and Devante Smith-Pelly. Pavel Zacha and Sam Bennett, who was a healthy scratch Thursday, rotated on the combination as well. Parenteau scored New Jersey's lone goal in a 2-1 OT loss to Florida, so he's getting some extra opportunities.
Sat, Oct 15, 2016 09:17:00 AM

P.A. Parenteau scored in Thursday's 2-1 overtime loss to the Florida Panthers.

Not a bad debut for a guy the Devils picked up off waivers earlier this week. Parenteau tipped a Yohann Auvitu shot by Panthers goalie Roberto Luongo. The 33-year-old was surprisingly productive last season, as he scored 20 goals and 41 points in 77 games with the Maple Leafs in 2015-16. Despite the solid start to the year, it would be surprising to see him post numbers that high this year.

P. A. Parenteau was "shocked" when the New York Islanders placed him on waivers.

Parenteau seemed set to open the season on a line with John Tavares, but he'll play for the New Jersey Devils instead after they claimed him. "I understand it’s a business," said Parenteau. "I have to turn the page quickly. We have a game tomorrow. It looks like I’m going to be in the lineup. I have to turn the page. It’s new teammates, new linemates but it’s hockey at the end of the day so I’ll be ready to go." He's projected to play alongside Pavel Zacha and Jacob Josefson.
