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. Oct 15 - 9:17 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.

P. A. Parenteau has been claimed off waivers by New Jersey.

He was surprisingly waived by the Islanders on Monday. Parenteau had 20 goals and 41 points in 77 games with Toronto last season.

P. A. Parenteau has been placed on waivers by the New York Islanders.

That's disappointing to say the least. Parenteau had 20 goals and 41 points in 77 games with the Toronto Maple Leafs, which was decent even though it wasn't as productive as we saw from him in his glory days. Now that he was back with the Islanders though and reunited with John Tavares, it looked like Parenteau might be a bounce back candidate in 2016-17. Parenteau might still be claimed off waivers, but it's doubtful he'll get as good of an opportunity elsewhere as it previously looked like he would get with the Islanders.
Oct 10 - 12:11 PM

It looks as if P.A. Parenteau will start the season on the Islanders' top line alongside John Tavares and Andrew Ladd.

That's a pretty good place to play from a fantasy perspective. If Parenteau can keep this gig throughout the season, he could top 50 points after a 41-point campaign with the offensively-challenged Maple Leafs in 2015-16.

P.A. Parenteau is excited to be back with the New York Islanders.

Parenteau was an Islander back in 2010-11 and 2011-12 and he re-joined the team as a free agent this summer. "The Islanders have made some big steps in the past few years, winning in the first round last year," said Parenteau. "It’s pretty impressive and with Johnny [Tavares] getting older, Travis [Hamonic], the D-corps they have there, there’s a lot of depth up front too, anything can happen. I’m really excited to be a part of this team like I said. When I played there four or five years ago we weren’t Stanley Cup contenders and now this team is. There are so many good players, I think Cappy [Head Coach Jack Capuano] has done a really good job too." The 33-year-old scored 20 goals and 41 points in 77 games with the Maple Leafs last season.

P.A. Parenteau could wind up on the same line as John Tavares this season.

He performed well there in his first stint with the Islanders from 2010-12— recording 20 and 18 goals, respectively, and notching career highs in points (53 and 67). Parenteau had a bounce back year in Toronto last season, tallying 20 goals and 41 points. "I got a chance to play with (Tavares) my first year when (Jack Capuano) took over and we had a good thing going," Parenteau said. "I’m not assuming I will play there again but if I do it will be awesome. He’s one of the best in the league, the best on some nights. It’s a big reason why I decided to come back." Remember him in drafts next season.

Jul 2 - 5:47 PM

Toronto is open to bringing back potential unrestricted free agent P. A. Parenteau.

"There have been a couple of discussions. Very preliminary. I would say every possibility is on the table," Partenteau's agent, Allan Walsh, said earlier this week. "They have not closed the door to him coming back, but I don't think it's a decision that's going to be made now. I think it's a decision that's going to be made just before we get to July 1." He recorded 20 goals and 41 points in 77 games with the Leafs last season.

Apr 10 - 12:39 AM

P.A. Parenteau scored in the Leafs 5-2 victory over the Panthers on Tuesday.

The second goal was Parenteau's 100th of his career. The 33 year-old feels that he feels good and can still contribute, "I feel good on the ice. I just turned 33 (on March 24) but I feel I have a lot of good years left in me. I was pretty much injury-free all year. I feel I can help the team and hopefully it will be the Maple Leafs." This season, PArenteau has 19 goals and 19 assists in 71 games.
