Brodeur calls Parise the “face of the Devils”

Zach Parise

Martin Brodeur was already on the record as believing the top offseason priority for Devils GM Lou Lamoriello was getting team captain Zach Parise re-signed in New Jersey.

Today, the 40-year-old goalie reiterated his stance (via’s Dan Rosen), calling Parise “the face of the Devils” – an interesting comment from Brodeur, who many would pick as the face of the Devils, if they had to pick one.

Echoing Brodeur’s sentiments on Parise was Ilya Kovalchuk.

“That’s our first priority this offseason, to re-sign him,” said Kovalchuk, as per’s Katie Strang. “He’s our leader.”

Parise is expected to speak later, though we’d be surprised if he committed to anything other than remaining noncommittal. But if he does decide to leave New Jersey, at the very least he’ll leave feeling sort of guilty.
