The Dallas Stars are expected to make a trade for the Colorado Avalanche’s P.A. Parenteau, but that doesn’t mean they’ll be shopping him to any other team.
Parento, the No. 2 overall pick in this year’s draft, is entering his age-35 season and has had three surgeries on his hip and right knee.
So, no matter what happens in the future, he won’t be available to the Stars.
He’ll likely be in the AHL or AHL affiliate of the team he’s playing for.
The Stars have said they are open to making a trade, but they haven’t given any firm indication as to what they might offer him.
Parenta said he expects to play for the Stars for a few more years, but his agent, Mark Abbott, said in February he doesn’t expect Parenta to return to the NHL.
The Avalanche have also been linked to Parenta.
