Zach Parise ‘Never Took A Shot’ At Bylsma


Zach Parise said he had no problem with Dan Bylsma or his system during their time together with Team USA at the Winter Olympic Games.

“I liked his system, along with the other players,” Parise said in an email Monday. “His system didn’t have anything to do with why we didn’t win a medal.”

Parise captained the American men’s ice hockey team that failed to score a goal in two closing losses last week in Sochi, Russia. The Americans were coached by Bylsma, who has presided over one of the NHL’s top offenses in each of his five full seasons with the Penguins.
