The Islanders and Wild are reportedly putting together a trade that would bring Zach Parise back to the Tri-State Area.
According to TSN's Frank Seravalli, the Wild would send Parise to the Islanders to reunite him with GM Lou Lamoriello, and in return would receive a package that includes Andrew Ladd.
Lamoriello was the Devils GM back in 2003 when they selected Parise with the 17th overall pick in that year's NHL Draft.
Parise left the Devils in 2012 to sign with his hometown Minnesota Wild, while Lamoriello remained in New Jersey until 2015, when he resigned as GM but stayed on as team president before signing on as the Maple Leafs GM two months later.
In 61 games this season with the Wild, Parise has scored 21 goals and assisted on 16. He has five-plus years remaining on a deal that's AAV is $7.5 million.
Ladd has only appeared in two games for the Islanders this year, having spent most of the season in the AHL.
