Zach Parise testing free-agent market

By Pierre LeBrun

Zach Parise is headed to market.

His agents Don Meehan and Wade Arnott of Newport Sports confirmed to ESPN.com via email that Parise would test the UFA market but also keep the New Jersey Devils very much in the mix.

Parise is the top forward available on the UFA market.

Pittsburgh, Detroit, Minnesota and several other teams are expected to make offers for Parise.

A source told ESPN.com the Red Wings sent a delegation to Newport’s offices in the Toronto area.

Another NHL source told ESPN The Magazine's Craig Custance that Carolina also has an offer on the table for Parise.
