IMPORTANT HOCKEY STUFF: Drafted 174th overall by the Kings in the 2004 NHL Entry Draft. He spent some quality time with the Reading Royals of the ECHL, before moving up through the Manchester Monarchs and finally on to the LAK, where he played his first NHL game on October 24, 2009 for the Kings against the Phoenix Coyotes. In the 3rd period his debut game, Parse recorded his first NHL point with an assist to forward Jarret Stoll who scored on Coyotes goalie Ilya Bryzgalov (and take it from someone who watches him quite a bit, Bryz ain't easy.) His first NHL goal was scored on October 29, 2009 in the 1st period against Andrew Raycroft of the Vancouver Canucks.
On March 29th, 2010 Parse scored both goals in a 2-3 loss by the Kings at the hands of the Minnesota Wild. It was Parse's first 2 goal game in the NHL. He scored the following night against the Nashville Predators, a goal which proved to be the game winner, making it 3 goals in 2 games for the Kings.
On May 26th, 2010 Parse re-signed with the Kings for 2 years with a cap hit of $900,000 per season.
THE REALLY IMPORTANT STUFF: 6'0, 197lbs he's beautifully sized for a "high performance" forward. Forward of what, well I'll leave that for you ladies to decide (or fantasize, or day dream, or how ever you chose to spend your free time, or you time at work for that matter... well, if you're like some of us.... oops, did I say that...) He's of the blond hair and blue eyes persuasion, that we all (well, me at least, and I'm writing, and looking...) love so much, and well, I'm really attached to the highlights.
There is truly not much on this guy's personal life. I don't know why, I would think with his looks, he'd have his own stalker alarm, guard dogs, etc. But I guess he's just an expert at going "under cover". (and yes, in case any of you were wondering, he can join me under my personal cover any time.

Holding Out for A Hero Bonnie Tyler (HftL's Theme Song)
Where have all the good men gone
And where are all the gods?
Where's the street-wise Hercules
To fight the rising odds?
Isn't there a white knight upon a fiery steed?
Late at night I toss and turn and dream of what I need
I need a hero
I'm holding out for a hero 'til the end of the night
He's gotta be strong
And he's gotta be fast
And he's gotta be fresh from the fight
I need a hero
I'm holding out for a hero 'til the morning light
He's gotta be sure
And it's gotta be soon
And he's gotta be larger than life
Somewhere after midnight
In my wildest fantasy
Somewhere just beyond my reach
There's someone reaching back for me
Racing on the thunder end rising with the heat
It's gonna take a superman to sweep me off my feet
Up where the mountains meet the heavens above
Out where the lightning splits the sea
I would swear that there's someone somewhere
Through the wind end the chill and the rain
And the storm and the flood
I can feel his approach
Like the fire in my blood
