The renowned NHLer Zach Parise announced his official retirement from the NHL in a new interview.

He confirmed that Thursday night's game against the Edmonton Oilers will be the last regular season game of his career.
He doesn't want to make a big deal of it, but #Avs Zach Parise confirmed tomorrow night will be the last regular-season game of his career.

He's also happy he came back and ready for one more chance to win the Stanley Cup:

"Yeah, I've decided. I'm not going to make a big deal out of it. I was content coming back that this would be the last one."

"It's been awesome to be a part of. The experience itself. Playing with these guys and even just practicing with them, it makes you a better player — even at my age. It's gone even better than I thought it would be."

Parise signed a one-year contract with the Avs in January, in the hope of finally winning a Stanley Cup.
He's expected to play a significant role in the Avs' bottom-six. With his vast playoff experience (80 points in 111 games), he'll definitely be one of the players to watch.
