The Kings will pursue Zach Parise

According to Steve Simmons of the Toronto Sun, the newly crowned Stanley Cup champion Los Angeles Kings have put Zach Parise  No. 1 on their off-season shopping list.

They want Parise, as do many teams, and they want him badly.

The Kings battled the Devils for free agent Ilya Kovalchuk in the summer of 2010.

Parise said today that he wants to stay in New Jersey.
