Zach Parise Signs Multi-Year Deal with CCM Hockey
Zach Parise of the Minnesota Wild has finally found himself a new home with CCM Hockey.
Parise was an Easton Hockey athlete for many years, working with their design team on sticks, and wearing their gear on the ice quite exclusively. But after Easton was bought out by Bauer Hockey, and then Bauer declaring bankruptcy, Parise was left looking for a new brand to work with.
As he settled in this season with CCM gear, a partnership seemed inevitable. Now, Parise will rep the brand with his helmet, gloves, stick, pants, and of course his skates. On the ice, he joins other NHL stars such as Sidney Crosby, Jonathan Tavares, Connor McDavid, Patrice Bergeron, Nathan MacKinnon, and plenty more who are all CCM athletes.
What gear does Zach Parise use on the ice? I’m sure many of you are asking yourselves that same question. Here are a few of the items Parise currently has on the ice for each game.

CCM Hockey, the world’s leading hockey equipment manufacturer, is pleased to announce a multi-year partnership with Zach Parise, alternate captain for the Minnesota Wild and two-time U.S. Olympian. A native of Minneapolis, Minnesota, Parise joins an impressive roster of CCM athletes including Sidney Crosby, Connor McDavid, Carey Price, Patrice Bergeron and John Tavares.
Drafted in 2003, Parise has scored over 300 goals throughout his NHL career. After being named to the Men’s Olympic Hockey Team in 2010, the left winger represented the United States in the Olympic Winter Games in Vancouver, earning a silver medal. Parise also participated in the most recent 2014 Winter Olympic Games in Sochi, Russia.
To announce the multi-year partnership, Parise made a special appearance today at the Wayzata Boys Varsity Ice Hockey practice to honor the team’s 2016 State Championship title. During his appearance at Wayzata’s practice, Parise surprised the team and presented them with a congratulatory banner on behalf of CCM.
“I am excited to partner with a brand with so much hockey heritage,” said Parise. “Today, players have a lot of choice when it comes to equipment. I wanted to partner with CCM because of the brand’s clear focus on innovation and technology. I’m very impressed with how well the equipment performs and how well it responds to my needs on the ice.”
“We are very honored to have Zach as a CCM ambassador,” said Sean Williams, Vice President Global Marketing and NA Sales, CCM Hockey. “He’s a leader and a competitor who represents our brand values on and off the ice. We look forward to helping Zach achieve his goals by providing him with high performance equipment and great service.”
As part of the agreement, Parise will exclusively use CCM equipment. He will also participate in CCM’s many community-based initiatives, support upcoming product launches and serve as a global ambassador for the brand.
