According to multiple reports, Zach Parise and his agents have been talking to the Devils about a new contract.

Parise told Tom Gulitti of Fire and Ice, “I talked to them (agents) on Monday and I’m going to do it again today, but we’re definitely talking with the team.”

Parise told Rich Chere of Star Ledger that the Devils will still be in mix on July 1 if both sides don’t reach a deal.

Parise: “I’ve said all along how much I like playing in New Jersey. [We] want to try to get things worked out with New Jersey.”

Parise is eligible to become an unrestricted free agent at noon on Sunday.
