s/t to Tedder11 for posting this one over on Siouxsports.com, yeah the one that used to play for the Fighting Sioux as well.  Good to know that Zach is still not a fan of the Gophers after all of these years. Thank God Lou Nannie and Glen Sonmor weren’t able to get Zach to change his mind.

Asked about playing in the Xcel Energy Center, Parise said: "I love coming here and playing. Unfortunately we do it every other year. It's a great arena. Growing up around here I'd go and watch state tournaments. Everybody loves hockey. The fans are real knowledgeable about the game. When you can call this a home and come back and play it's a lot of fun."

He was asked by a local TV questioner if he had a favorite local hockey player, perhaps a University of Minnesota Gophers player? Not a good question for a University of North Dakota player.

"No Gophers. Come on," Parise said with a laugh. "I was always a big (Neal) Broten fan and (Mike) Modano fan. I was more watching the North Stars growing up than the Gophers. I kind of got more attached to that than college. But definitely no Gophers."

When asked about the Gophers being ranked No. 1, Parise said: "That's when I stopped paying attention. UND always has a strong second half. They always seem to heat up at the right time heading into the playoffs."
