Zach Parise, fashion model: Wild star shows off Olympic uniform

I’m sorry, but this picture makes Zach look like a mannequin at Herberger’s in Rosedale.

Welcome, Zach And Ryan via the Minnesota Wild

when the season ended in April, I found myself wondering, perhaps as you did, how long that process might take and how we could accelerate it. To Chuck’s credit, he had an ambitious plan and today’s announcement of the signing of free agents Zach Parise and Ryan Suter marks the culmination of that plan. We now have the two most coveted free agents in the NHL to add to our veteran core, led by our captain Mikko Koivu, and our acclaimed class of young prospects. Sounds pretty good to me.

So…this just happened.
