SSM instrumental in Parise’s career path Two year’s spent in Faribault, Minn., may have been key to Zach Parise’s route to NHL stardom and a $98 million contract. (Brace Hemmelgarn-US PRESSWIRE) Brace Hemmelgarn-US PRESSWIRE July 9, 2012 In pictures: Zach Parise. VIEW GALLERY » Zach Parise and Ryan Suter’s introductory press conference. VIEW GALLERY » ST. PAUL, Minn. — Less than an hour away from the Xcel Energy Center, the new home for Minnesota Wild forward Zach Parise is the rink where Parise shined as a star for Shattuck-St. Mary’s. The prep school in Faribault, Minn., has turned into a hockey hotbed for high school players, and the school has Parise to thank for that. Parise spent two seasons playing at SSM, from 2000-2002. During the 2001-02 season, Parise scored a whopping 178 points (77 goals, 101 assists) in 67 games with the Sabres. It was a sign that perhaps Parise had what it took to play hockey at the highest level, and those close to him at Shattuck could see it early on. “There’s no guarantee with anything when you’re that young,” said Tom Ward, Parise’s coach at SSM. “You could definitely see guys that would have a chance if things keep going their way and they don’t have a severe injury or something like that. Zach was definitely one of those guys, for sure.” Shattuck-St. Mary’s is unlike any other hockey program in the state of Minnesota. In fact, there are few schools in the country that rival the rigorous, lengthy schedules and numerous hours of ice time offered at SSM. That’s a big reason why Parise, a Minnesota native, enrolled for two seasons at the school. “I learned a lot about the right way to play the game,” Parise said Monday as the Wild introduced him and defenseman Ryan Suter at a press conference. “I had some really good coaches there. It really is a special place down there.” But his father also had a big role in Parise ending up at Shattuck. J.P. Parise played for the Minnesota North Stars, among other teams, and later went on to coach the North Stars. After coaching in the NHL, Parise served as the prep coach and director of hockey at SSM. Naturally, his sons Zach and Jordan went on to play for the Sabres. Before Zach Parise left his mark on Shattuck-St. Mary’s his father, J.P., was helping turn the school into the powerhouse that it currently is. “He was one of the founding fathers,” Ward said of J.P. Parise. “He took over the program from Craig Norwich, who started it, and did a great job molding the thing and putting it together. … J.P., he spent a lot of time and energy here and made this thing what it was. We’re just here carrying on and keeping it trucking.” Many notable NHL players have called Shattuck-St. Mary’s home, including Parise. Perhaps the name most often associated with the school is Penguins star Sidney Crosby, who spent just one year at SSM but also helped put the program on the map as he rose to stardom in the NHL. Crosby and Parise didn’t overlap at SSM, however, as Crosby played from 2002-03, when Parise was a freshman at the University of North Dakota. Chay Genoway became the first SSM alum to play for the Minnesota Wild when he appeared in one game last season. Parise now has the chance to be the first regular contributor in Wild history to emerge from Shattuck-St. Mary’s. “Those guys that are playing in the National Hockey League, whenever they get a chance to mention the fact that they had played and went to school at Shattuck-St. Mary’s, we couldn’t buy that kind of advertising and that kind of marketing for our school and our hockey program,” Ward said. “Is it going to be great for us here at Shattuck and for me personally? Yeah, for sure. But the greatest benefit is going to be to Minnesota hockey, to people that are Wild fans and to youth hockey.” While playing for SSM, Parise and Suter crossed paths several times. Back then, Suter was playing for the Madison Capitols, an independent AAA hockey team from Wisconsin. He also played for Culver Academy in 2000-2001, a team Shattuck-St. Mary’s views as a rival. Like their schools, Suter and Parise became somewhat of rivals at the time as well. The two ultimately signed with the Wild last week because they wanted to play on the same team as friends. But back then, there was no love lost. “We hated each other playing,” Suter said Monday. “We would battle, for sure. … He was the top player for Shattuck and I was the top player for Madison. We’d have to beat each other to win.” A decade later, Shattuck-St. Mary’s still holds a special place in Parise’s heart. He keeps in touch with Ward and said he and his former coach still go fishing together in the offseason. And all of Parise’s groomsmen in his upcoming wedding are friends he met while at Shattuck. “A lot of memories playing there,” Parise said. “I had an unbelievable experience playing there.” The Sabres hang up the jerseys of all the alumni that eventually make it to the NHL. Near the front of the pack, next to the likes of Crosby and Chicago’s Jonathan Toews, is Parise’s red No. 9 Devils sweater. Ward said the school won’t replace it with a green Wild jersey, instead keeping the New Jersey sweater framed and hanging as a reminder of Parise’s ascent to the player he has become. Parise definitely honed his hockey craft during his two seasons under the tutelage of Ward at Shattuck-St. Mary’s. The leadership that resulted in Parise being named captain in New Jersey and alternate captain with the Wild, that’s been there from the beginning. “He’s the same player now that he was then,” Ward said. “He was an energetic, hard-working, humble kid. He hasn’t changed a lot. That’s one of the most endearing qualities about him is the kid hasn’t changed a lot from when he was 15 years old. … “He’s going to do anything he possibly can to help that group. It doesn’t always have to be about him. He doesn’t have to score or he doesn’t have to be the guy. He just wants to help them win and he wants to be out there trying to help the guys win.” Special Thanks to: Tyler Mason. Follow Tyler Mason on Twitter.

SSM instrumental in Parise’s career path
The Hot List: Shattuck bruiser Michigan State will be happy when bruising defender John Draeger lands on campus. (Photo courtesy Shattuck St-Mary’s) Ryan Kennedy 2012-04-03 13:04:00 Did a little road trip to Amherst, NY, on Friday to catch Shattuck-St. Mary’s for the first time. The Sabres’ under-18 squad was playing in the U.S. national championship and ended up winning it all thanks to a 2-1 victory over the L.A. Jr. Kings. Elsewhere, the Frozen Four is about to pop off and Sarnia found out the hard way that a dynasty can’t be built overnight as the Sting bowed out of the Ontario League playoffs to Saginaw. With all that and more in mind, here’s a look at some of the players we’re excited to see in the NHL one day. John Draeger, D – Shattuck-St. Mary’s Sabres (Minn. HS) The top defenseman on Shattuck, Draeger is a physical blueliner known for his reach and quick feet. He can punish with his 6-foot-2, 186-pound frame, but also showed some nice touch against Milwaukee, scoring on a beautiful penalty shot move. “I like to be that all-around player,” Draeger said. “Help out the team offensively, defensively…be that guy who shows the younger guys the way and help them out.” Though Shattuck draws players from around the world, Draeger is from Faribault, the Minnesota home of the prep school. Needless to say, having neighbors such as Sidney Crosby and Jonathan Toews was a great influence and the dorm experience provided by the school has lived up to expectations. “It’s great,” Draeger said. “You get to know everybody. You bond with the guys by living together, going to dinner together. You get to be a better team.” The big blueliner is committed Michigan State, where he’ll reunite with Shattuck alum Tanner Sorenson. And while Chicago’s Duncan Keith was a Spartan, Draeger actually looks up to his partner. “Brent Seabrook, for sure,” he said. “He’s a big, lanky guy. He’s physical and can bury the puck and I think I play a lot like him.” No doubt MSU would love for that to come true. Draft eligible in 2012 .
It was a successful weekend back for both the boys and girls soccer programs at Shattuck-St. Mary’s. Two of the boy’s teams traveled to Milwaukee and Chicago to play in two Development Academy games, while the U18YS team had two friendly home games. The girls competed in the Jefferson Cup in Richmond, VA over the weekend.
Girls Review: Jefferson Cup In their opening game of the 2012 Jefferson Cup, the U18 girls took down Jersey United in convincing fashion, winning 5-1. After a three week spring break and four weeks since their last game, Coach Linenberger was very pleased with his teams performance. “We did well keeping possession and created numerous goal scoring chances. We could have easily scored 10-12 goals” said Linenberger. In their second game of the tournament, SSM came out against the Arundel Vipers and won another convincing game 4-0. According to Linenberger, “The second game of a three game weekend is always the most difficult and we were slow to start. We kept the ball and scored on the chances we created. We did well to get a shutout.” Playing a third game in three days, for the time since January, the Shattuck girls came out against Oakwood a bit tired and heavy legged. Oakwood, a strong team who won both of their first two games, put the pressure on Shattuck in the first half. “We had a good talk at half-time and really responded to play a very good second half. Though we lost 0-2, we played well, kept care of the ball, showed good fight, spirit and intensity” said Linenberger. Game #1 : 1-0 Powell (22. Graybill, M.); 2-0 Fredette (30. Moss); 3-0 Ulrich (49. Sparrman)3-1 (60.); 4-1 Powell (69. Lundberg); 5-1 Powell (79. Goulet) Game #2: 1-0 Powell (20. Ulrich); 2-0 Powell (37. Graybill, S.); 3-0 Patterson (62.); 4-0 Powell (80. Moss) Game #3: 0-1 (42.); 0-2 (50)
Boys Review Saturday: The U18DA and the U16DA teams traveled to Milwaukee on Saturday to take on FC Milwaukee in their first Development Academy games of 2012. In the U18 game, Shattuck went down 0-1 early on, but soon responded with a goal from sophomore standout Ricky Lopez . Shattuck put the game out of reach at the end of the first half, with two goals coming in three minutes for Patrick Barnes and John Lujano . The game finished 3-1. In the U16 game, the trend continued with Shattuck going down 0-1 to FC Milwaukee, but storming back to finish the game 6-2. Three players doubled their goal tallies in this game. Heath Honold , Steve Eneme , and Neal Usry all netted a pair of goals. In the U18YS game, Shattuck took on Valley United from Minneapolis in a friendly game at home. The game started off with much of the possession going to the home team, although Valley United put loads of pressure on Shattuck two outside-backs. The teams went into halftime tied at 0-0. Substitute, Karl Frisk scored a back-post header ten minutes into the second half. That was the game winner, as Shattuck won 1-0. Sunday: The U18DA traveled to Chicago to take on the Chicago Sockers in their second DA game of the weekend. Not much to tell from this game as it was even across the board, with Shattuck edging the Sockers in scoring opportunities, but never converting. The game finished 0-0 with Dary Dewalt getting the shutout for Shattuck. The U16DA team was not as lucky to come out of Chicago with a point, as they lost to the Sockers 0-1. In a well played game, Shattuck gave up a goal about halfway through the second half. Shattuck had their fair share of scoring opportunities, but failed to convert. The best two chances came from Jose Ojeda in the 30th minute, who saw his shot sail over from close range, and in stoppage time of the second half Corey Cadeau just missed a diving header at the back post. Back in Minnesota it was a different story for the U18YS team who took on a weaker opponent in CC United, in their second friendly of the weekend. The scoring was opened up halfway through the first have and didn’t stop until the final whistle at 7-0. Next up for the the U18YS squad is a friendly this weekend against Minneapolis United, and then it is on to the 2012 Dallas Cup.
