PA Parenteau Rumor Untrue | May

The rumor that PA Parenteau is looking to sign a deal in Montreal is untrue, according to his agent Allan Walsh.

The rumor appeared on twitter late Sunday evening saying that Parenteau wanted to play in the Canadian city and was looking for a 4 year, $3 million deal. Walsh refuted the rumor on twitter saying, “the only thing PA Parenteau is focused on at this time is returning to the NYI.”

He later told Islanders Hockey Blog via email: “PA Parenteau's sole focus is returning to the NYI. The Islanders gave him his opportunity to play regularly in the NHL. He enjoys a special relationship with the head coach and his teammates. It's PA's sincere hope that he can remain an Islander.”

Parenteau will be an unrestricted free agent come July 1, if the Islanders do not resign him.
