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.

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.

Mar 8 - 2:07 PM

P.A. Parenteau still isn't ready to return to Toronto's lineup.

PA Parenteau isn't back to full health yet and won't dress against the Capitals on Wednesday night.

The Maple Leafs and the Islanders are talking about a deal for PA Parenteau, per Gary Lawless.

The Islanders don't have a 2016 second, but do have a 2017 second, which the Leafs apparently would accept. The 32-year-old winger enjoyed perhaps the brightest portion of his career out on Long Island, posting 38 goals and 120 points in 161 games from 2010-12. This season with Toronto he's posted 16 goals and 32 points in 60 games, though is currently sidelined with an upper body injury but is considered day-to-day.
