News:P.A. Parenteau scored once and added an assist in Friday's win over Phoenix, his first points in two games.
Analysis:P.A. Parenteau has quietly been one of the season's best signings, as the Avs snagged him from the Islanders for a relative bargain of $4 million per season. Pareanteau is in the midst of a career-best season in terms of points per game with 43 in 47 contests. He's a talented winger who has enjoyed playing alongside 2009's top draft picks in his career, as he's showed good chemistry with both Matt Duchene and John Tavares.
News:P.A. Parenteau snagged his 17th goal of the season in Friday's 4-1 loss to Edmonton, his second tally in three games.
Analysis:P.A. Parenteau is just one goal away from reaching his 18-goal total from last season, doing so in just over half as many games. The $4 million per-year contract he signed with Colorado last summer is looking like a relative bargain for a player just under a point-per-game pace on one of the league's worst teams. Remember his name next fall, just don't overpay for him. The fact that he's on Colorado and not named Matt Duchene could make him a value.
Avs' Parenteau Ties Game At 3-3 With Goal Saturday
News:P.A. Parenteau scored his 16th goal of the season in Saturday's 4-3 win over the Canucks.
Analysis:P.A. Parenteau's goal tied the game at 3-3 with less than eight minutes left in the third period and the Avs went on to win when Jan Hejda buried the game-winner with 7.6 seconds left. Parenteau tallied 18 points in 15 March games and now has five points (two goals) through the first eight games of April.
News:P.A. Parenteau scored one of Colorado's goals in Friday's 3-2 loss to Detroit, giving him four points in the last five games.
Analysis:P.A. Parenteau is enjoying a career-best points-per-game season in his debut with the Avs, notching 37 points in as many games. His 15 goals are well above his career averages, as he notched a modest 18 goals in 80 games last season. Parenteau's four-year, $16 million contract is looking like a relative bargain considering the lack of production by players making much more than Parenteau.
News:P.A. Parenteau scored a power-play goal and added an assist against the Canucks on Sunday.
Analysis:P.A. Parenteau has had some plus/minus issues this season, but he's scored 31 points in 31 games.
News:P.A. Parenteau grabbed a goal and two assists in Friday's win over Chicago, extending his points streak to five games.
Analysis:P.A. Parenteau has been a relative bargain for what the Avs paid for him this past summer as he has been playing at a point-per-game pace. During this five-game points streak, Parenteau has eight points and is a plus-4 over that stretch. He's settling in nicely with the Avs' talented group of centers and should continue seeing his name on the scoresheet.
News:P.A. Parenteau scored a power-play goal and picked up 12 penalty minutes against the Ducks on Sunday.
Analysis:P.A. Parenteau has taken to his new team well, as he has eight goals and 15 points in 17 games. Don't expect the penalty minutes from him, though, as he only has 20 on the season even with this outing.
News:P.A. Parenteau was blanked for just the second time in seven games as the Avalanche dropped a disappointing contest at Edmonton on Saturday, 6-4.
Analysis: He's been so involved in the Colorado scoring, that it's remarkable that the Avs tallied four times and he didn't play a role in any of the goals. He's proven himself to be a steady scorer, so you shouldn't hesitate to start him when Colorado next takes the ice, Monday against Nashville.
News:P.A. Parenteau scored two goals (one an empty-netter) and picked up an assist Thursday against the Flames.
Analysis: It's been a Jekyll-and-Hyde start to the year for P.A. Parenteau, who's impressed in all four of the games in which he's recorded points, but has been invisible in his three scoreless outings, recording a grand total of one shot on goal in those games. Parenteau's got offensive talent, but he's like a box of chocolates -- you never know what you'll get.
News:P.A. Parenteau is expected to open training camp on a line with Matt Duchene, according to the Denver Post.
Analysis:P.A. Parenteau recorded 38 goals over the last two seasons on Long Island playing with another skilled center - John Tavares - so he could be a good fit with Duchene, who was selected just two spots behind Tavares in the 2009 draft. Either way, the Avs boast a good young supporting cast who should mesh well with Parenteau this season, so expect some quality numbers from him in his Denver debut.
News: Avs coach Joe Sacco is expecting big things out of P.A. Parenteau this season, according to the Denver Post.
Analysis: "[P.A. Parenteau is] a guy who is going to fill a void for us on the wings, a guy who is going to give us some scoring, playing with some top players," Sacco said. "He's a top-six forward, a power-play guy, [who will be] counted on to produce some offense for us." Parenteau is coming off two very good campaigns with the Islanders in which he averaged 60 points per season with just three games missed. He could turn out to be the game-breaking right-winger the Avs have been lacking the last couple of seasons.
News:P.A. Parenteau has signed a four-year, $16 million deal with the Avalanche, according to TSN's Bob McKenzie.
Analysis: He parlayed two strong seasons on Long Island -- he had 120 points with a high of 67 last year -- into a Brinks truck filled with cash. He's a good complementary player and should slot into a spot beside either Matt Duchene or Ryan O'Reilly, and that should deliver fantasy points.
News:P.A. Parenteau is likely to leave the Isles once free agency begins on July 1, according to Newsday.
Analysis:P.A. Parenteau will more than likely receive a multi-year offer in free agency thus pricing him out of the Islanders budget. The Isles like Parenteau, but feel he could be replaced by Kyle Okposo, Josh Bailey, or even Nino Niederreiter on the top line.
News:P.A. Parenteau (ankle) won't make the trip to Columbus for Isles' season finale Saturday, Newsday's Arthur Staple reports.
Analysis:P.A. Parenteau finishes up the season with 18 goals, while notching career-highs in assists (49) and points (67) in 80 games, a total good for third on the team in scoring.
News:P.A. Parenteau left the ice in the second period with an injury to his left leg Thursday after being undercut by sliding Winnipeg defenseman Mark Stuart, who broke up a breakaway attempt, the Associated Press reports.
Analysis: With only one game left in the Islanders' non-playoff season and unrestricted free agency looming, there's a chance P.A. Parenteau may have played his last game for the franchise. If they are unable to keep him, he's ended his Isles career with a bang, posted a career-high 67 points so far.
News:P.A. Parenteau scored two goals in a 6-3 loss to the Bruins on Saturday.
Analysis: The goals were P.A. Parenteau's first in his last five games. Over that span he has just three points. Parenteau has been a consistent helper on the season, ranking eighth in the league with 49 assists.
News:P.A. Parenteau would like to remain with the Islanders, according to Newsday.
Analysis:P.A. Parenteau leads the teams with 49 assists and has been a productive second line winger for the team. He is a free agent this July and could be in line for a contract in the neighborhood of $4 million a season.
News:P.A. Parenteau scored once and assisted on two other goals in Tuesday's 5-2 win over Toronto.
Analysis: The quietly productive pivot is certainly producing his his walk year. Expect the numbers to continue coming for P.A. Parenteau, but it remains to be seen if he will be with the Islanders come the summer. Regardless, he's been a massive value for owners with 64 points in 72 games.
News:P.A. Parenteau (upper body) will rejoin the lineup Thursday against the Flyers, the Islanders' official site reports.
Analysis: He only missed one game with the injury, so it appears safe to deploy him again if you're in a league that allows daily lineup changes.
News:P.A. Parenteau (upper body) will miss Tuesday's game against Washington, NewYorkIslanders.com reports.
Analysis: It's not clear when the injury was suffered, as P.A. Parenteau appeared to take a full workload while posting an assist against the Rangers on Sunday. Consider him day-to-day going forward.
News:P.A. Parenteau scored his 15th goal of the season, and added an assist, Sunday against Ottawa.
Analysis:P.A. Parenteau now has 58 points, 15 goals and 43 assists, in 62 games. He's fifth in the league in helpers.
News:P.A. Parenteau notched his 13th and 14th goals of the season Friday night as the Islanders downed the Rangers 4-3 in a shootout.
Analysis: Playing primarily on a line with John Tavares, P.A. Parenteau's numbers have flourished the last two seasons. He's almost at a point-a-game pace with 56 points in 61 games. He has 11 points (3G, 8A) in 12 games in February.
News:P.A. Parenteau assisted on the Islanders' only goal in Tuesday's loss to Buffalo, his third helper in the last three games.
Analysis:P.A. Parenteau has some excellent numbers on the season, with 12 goals and 42 helpers. He's on pace for close to 70 points and remains one of the best values of the season and best sources of assists.
News:P.A. Parenteau picked up two assists Saturday against the Hurricanes. His 53 points this season match his career best set last season.
Analysis: This year, those 53 points have come in 58 games instead of 81 which puts him on pace to come close to 75 points this season. He's turns 28 in late March and while there's always a chance he's a late bloomer, he is likely a product of his uber-talented linemate, John Tavares. His fantasy value -- particularly his keeper value -- is linked to any off-season moves the Isles make. But he's gold in single-year formats.
News:P.A. Parenteau tied up Tuesday's eventual overtime loss to Toronto with 13 seconds remaining in the game, giving him six points in the last five games.
Analysis:P.A. Parenteau's numbers have been a pleasant surprise for owners that gambled on him late in drafts or snagged him off waivers. He has 43 points in 48 games and appears poised to fly past last season's 53 points.
News: Parentau posted his second-consecutive two-point game, notching a goal and an assist in Thursday's win over Philadelphia.
Analysis:P.A. Parenteau's quietly strong season continues, as he is approaching point-per-game territory with 41 in 45 games. The crafty center is in a good situation with John Tavares on the Island and has shown little signs of inconsistency this season. He has eight points over the last six games.
News:P.A. Parenteau scored two goals Tuesday against the Caps, giving him nine on the year.
Analysis: With 39 points in 44 games, P.A. Parenteau continues to front on behalf of all late- (or un-)drafted, slightly undersized "career AHLers." Fantasy owners who bought him cheap have certainly realized a huge return this year.
News:P.A. Parenteau scored a goal and added an assist in Saturday's 4-1 win over the Oilers. The game was his 10th multi-point game of the season.
Analysis:P.A. Parenteau continues to be one of the few bright spots for the Islanders, leading the team with 32 points on the season.
News:P.A. Parenteau scored a power-play goal Thursday in a loss to the Rangers, his 13th point in nine career games against the Isles' crosstown rivals.
Analysis:P.A. Parenteau spent three seasons in the Rangers organization, putting up big numbers in the AHL and showing promise in his 22-game stint with the Blueshirts, but the Rangers let him walk as a free agent and he's repeatedly made them pay for it.
News:P.A. Parenteau tallied his fifth goal of the season in Tuesday's win over the Jets.
Analysis: He also scored in the shootout to help lift the team over Winnipeg. At 25 points on the season, P.A. Parenteau is ahead of last year's pace, which many thought to be a bit of a peak at 53 points.
News:P.A. Parenteau extended his scoring streak to four games by bagging three assists Saturday, as the Islanders beat the Stars in Dallas, 5-4.
Analysis: He seems to be an accurate barometer of the Isles' fortunes. In these four starts, the team is 3-0-1; during the preceding four-game losing streak, he was scoreless. All six of P.A. Parenteau's helpers during this string came on goals scored by linemate Matt Moulson.
News:P.A. Parenteau registered an assist for the second consecutive game in Tuesday's win over Buffalo.
Analysis: The slick-passing pivot has been active the last two games, as he had ended a four-game points drought. The drought is deceiving as the Islanders were shut out three times over that span. P.A. Parenteau is a cheap source of assists.
News:P.A. Parenteau had an impressive fantasy night on Saturday. He scored the game-winning goal and set up two others in a 5-3 win over the Capitals. He also had five penalty minutes.
Analysis: He'd gone four games without a point prior to Saturday and that put him back on the wire in a lot of daily formats. He can be a bit streaky so you may be able to grab him for some quick gains over two or three games. Just be cautious in weekly head-to-head formats -- he might just burn you.
News: Parentau assisted on both Islanders' goals in Monday's win over Minnesota.
Analysis: The crafty center had one of the more unlikely 53-point seasons one year earlier and is receiving power play for the Islanders. He's worth a look in deep leagues as a waiver pickup, as you could be rewarded with a handful of assists.
News: Parenteau hit the 20-goal plateau on the last night of the season. The Islanders lost 7-4 but Parenteau's goal and assist gave him a remarkable 53 points on the season.
Analysis: He's a journeyman who got in the right place at the right time. Don't count on this to necessarily continue next season. But we can't rule it out either.
News: Parenteau has picked up his play as of late, having collected six points (2 G, 4 A) in the last five games.
Analysis: Parenteau has really made a name for himself in 2010-11. He has 44 points (16 G, 28 A) in his first full season in the majors. A late bloomer, Parenteau is finally approaching 100 career NHL games despite being drafted back in 2001. From a fantasy perspective, he's turned out to be a great find in a number of different league formats.
News: Parenteau has signed a one-year extension with the Islanders worth $1.25 million, Newsday's Katie Strang reports.
Analysis: A nice reward for Parenteau, who is tied for second in scoring for the Isles with 35 points in 56 games. That's probably enough to help those in deeper leagues, provided his minus-11 rating isn't too much of a drag on that category.
News: Parenteau grabbed two assists Monday in the win over Calgary, giving him points in seven of the last nine contests.
Analysis: Parenteau's quietly been one of the most productive players in the league for a team that's playing well above their potential. We wouldn't jump on him immediately in standard leagues, but those in daily leagues looking for a scoring boost could consider Parenteau, who has 12 points in the last nine games.
News: Parenteau tallied his ninth of the season in overtime to lift the Islanders to a 4-3 win over host Detroit in Friday night action.
Analysis: He's picked up five goals and three assists over his last eight games. For a ninth-round pick way back in 2001, Parenteau is showing some offensive ability in what will be his first full NHL season, albeit in his third year and with his third team. With the Islanders, he will be given every opportunity, so he is worth a look in deeper leagues.
News: Parenteau extended his point streak to four games with an even-strength goal in Monday's 7-2 loss to the Rangers.
Analysis: Parenteau started the season on a tear, quieted down in November, and has since returned to prominence in fantasy circles with the New Year fast approaching. With that in mind, don't let the Islanders' poor record deter you from picking up one of the league's best kept secrets in Parenteau. With 11 power-play points to complement his latest hot streak, you could do much worse than employing his services in deep fantasy pools.
News: Parenteau notched a goal Wednesday in the win over Tampa, his second in three games.
Analysis: Parenteau has just six tallies on the year for the offensively-strapped Islanders and hasn't been terribly consistent with 17 points in 30 games.
News: The Rangers have recalled C P.A. Parenteau from the AHL and assigned LW Dane Byers.
Analysis: Both of these guys are nothing but organizational depth at this point and can be ignored in all formats.
News:P.A. Parenteau, in the Rangers' lineup only because top scorer Marian Gaborik sat out because of an undisclosed injury sustained two nights earlier, scored his first NHL goal during Wednesday's 3-1 loss to the Islanders. "It was one of the best feelings in my life, but it definitely would have been better if we won," Parenteau said.
Analysis: Parenteau, recalled from Hartford of the AHL on Tuesday, made his Rangers debut. He had one assist in five previous NHL games with Chicago. Parenteau appears nothing more than organizational depth and can be ignored in Fantasy.
News: The Rangers have summoned C P.A. Parenteau from the AHL.
Analysis: Parenteau might be needed if Marian Gaborik is going to miss any time with his undisclosed injury. He'll only be on the lower lines though, so continue to ignore him in Fantasy play until he gives you a reason to pick him up.
News: The Rangers agreed to terms with free-agent forward P.A. Parenteau Friday. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Analysis: Parenteau registered 29 goals and 49 assists in 74 games with Hartford of the AHL in 2008-09. His 49 assists tied a career-high, and he established a new career high in penalty minutes (142). The seventh-round pick has done a good job in the minors over the last few years, but he still hasn't shown the NHL scouts enough for a permanent promotion. He has no Fantasy appeal until further notice.
News: The Rangers announced Thursday that they signed C Pierre Parenteau to a contract extension. Terms of the deal were not disclosed. Parenteau has not played in the NHL since 2006-07 with the Blackhawks.
Analysis: Parenteau, 25, played in 75 games with the Hartford Wolf Pack (AHL) in 2007-08, registering 34 goals and 47 assists. He also had 81 penalty minutes. In his fifth AHL season he established career-highs in goals and points (81). Parenteau was acquired by the Rangers on October 11 from the Chicago Blackhawks in exchange for a conditional seventh round draft pick in the 2008 NHL Entry Draft. Parenteau will have to make an impact on the NHL game before using him in Fantasy play.
News: The Rangers sent C Pierre Parenteau back to Hartford of the AHL Wednesday after he was recalled for Tuesday's game against the Lightning.
Analysis: Parenteau is in his first year with the Rangers after spending the past few seasons with the Blackhawks. He is still fresh to the NHL game and is not a recommended Fantasy option at this time.
News: The Rangers recalled forwards Pierre Parenteau, Nigel Dawes and Greg Moore -- the top three scorers for AHL Hartford -- on Tuesday to fill the void created by Martin Straka and Sean Avery, who are out with injuries. Dawes and Moore were in the lineup against the Lightning Tuesday, but Parenteau sat out.
Analysis: Parenteau is in his first year with the Rangers after spending the past few seasons with the Blackhawks. He is still fresh to the NHL game and is not a recommended Fantasy option at this time. He likely will be back in the minors very shortly.
News: The Chicago Blackhawks traded Pierre Parenteau to the New York Rangers on Thursday for an undisclosed pick in the 2008 NHL Entry Draft.
Analysis: Parenteau had managed just one assist in five games for Rockford of the AHL so far this season. He'll likely end up with Hartford and will not have any Fantasy value for now.
News: The Chicago Blackhawks have returned Adam Berti, Bryan Bickell, Michael Blunden, Mike Brodeur, Evan Brophey, Troy Brouwer, Wade Flaherty, Jim Fahey, Colin Fraser, Jordan Hendry, Adam Hobson, Steve Marr, Pierre Parenteau, Jean-Claude Sawyer and Kris Versteeg to Rockford of the AHL on Sunday.
Analysis: Blunden, Brouwer and Parenteau have bright futures in the NHL, but they are only worth a look in long-term keeper Fantasy formats. Fahey and Flaherty have had time in the NHL before, but they aren't worth a look in seasonal leagues at this point.
News: The Chicago Blackhawks activated Jeff Hamilton (shoulder) from injured reserve and returned Pierre Parenteau to Norfolk of the AHL on Sunday.
Analysis: Parenteau might be back at some point, but his Fantasy value is negligible.
News: Blackhawks F Martin Pierre scored his first NHL goal and F Pierre Parenteau scored his first NHL point with an assist on the Hawks' third goal Wednesday against the Penguins. Pierre also led the Hawks with three hits.
Analysis: Parenteau is a recent recall from the AHL and could be sent back down as soon as the team gets healthy. He is not a recommended Fantasy option.
News: Craig MacDonald and Pierre Parenteau was recalled from Norfolk of the AHL on Thursday to replace C Jeff Hamilton (shoulder) and C Mikael Holmqvist (back).
Analysis: Parenteau will be making his NHL debut when he plays for the first time with the Blackhawks. He is not a recommended Fantasy option in any formats.
News: Blackhawks F Pierre Parenteau made his NHL debut against Vancouver Wednesday. The Hawks acquired him from Anaheim in a five-player trade of minor leaguers on Dec. 28. Parenteau had four goals and 11 assists in 16 games for Norfolk.
Analysis: Parenteau is not a recommended Fantasy option at this time.
News: The Anaheim Ducks traded minor-league C Pierre Parenteau and D Bruno St. Jacques to the Chicago Blackhawks on Thursday for G Sebastien Caron, LW Chris Durno and RW Matt Keith.
Analysis: Parenteau has rolled up 15 goals and 28 points in 28 games at the AHL level so far this season. He might get time in the NHL with the Blackhawks, but not enough to help Fantasy owners.
