UFA spotlight — George Parros

6 Comments

All week leading up to July 1, we’ll be profiling unrestricted free agents and speculating where they might end up.

George Parros (F)

Age: 32

2011-12 cap hit: $875,000

The skinny:

The mustachioed enforcer with a Princeton education (believed to be the only one in existence) is expected to move on from Anaheim after 356 games and 812 PIM in a Ducks uniform.

His agent, George Bazos, believes there will be a “good deal of interest” in his client.

Parros only averaged 6:23 of ice time per game in 2011-12, but he wasn’t a defensive liability, finishing with a plus-1 rating.

As for where he could end up, Buffalo and Vancouver are two teams that have been criticized for a lack of willingness/ability to protect skilled teammates.

Edmonton might want a replacement for Darcy Hordichuk.

Dallas?
