P. A. Parenteau has decided to hang up his skates.
Parenteau took the long way to the NHL as he didn't really establish himself at that level until he was 27-years-old. He recorded 53 points in 2010-11 with the Islanders and then followed that up with a 67-point campaign in 2011-12. He was never able to replicate those numbers, but he did surpass the 40-point milestone two more times and had 20 goals with Toronto in 2015-16. He's hanging up his skates with a total of 114 goals and 296 points in 491 games. Jun 14 - 10:30 AM

Even if he plays in the NHL this year, he won't have any fantasy value.
