Parrish joins TV broadcast team for SCSU games


Former St. Cloud State and NHL forward Mark Parrish will be a color commentator for St. Cloud State men’s hockey games this season beginning with the broadcast of Friday’s game against Minnesota State-Mankato. Games are available on Charter Cable Channel 87 in the St. Cloud area. Replays of games are played at 7 p.m. Mondays and Tuesdays on Charter Cable Channel 21.

“Being asked to provide color commentary for my alma mater is a real thrill,” Parris said in a news release. “I’m incredibly excited to join (play-by-play announcer) Jim (Rich) in the announcers’ booth and work with Husky Productions.”

Parrish played for the Huskies from 1995-97. In the NHL, he played for Florida Panthers (1998-2000), New York Islanders (2000-06), Los Angeles Kings (2005-06), Minnesota Wild (2006-08), Dallas Stars (2008-09), Tampa Bay Lightning (2009-10) and Buffalo Sabres (2011-12). In 749 NHL games, he had 221 goals and 175 assists.

My wife Kristin and I have two boys (Luke, 5, and Josh, 3) and we live in St. Cloud. I have had two stints working at the Times. I worked here from 1986-91 as a part-time sports reporter and intern.

I spent one year as the prep sports coordinator, six years as the St. Cloud State reporter (football, men's and women's basketball and everything else but hockey) and spent four years as the Citizen Times editor. The last two years, I was also the editor of the Rocori Times and Sauk Rapids-Rice Times sections, which are mailed directly to people in those two school districts.
