Ales Parez (born April 9, 1981 in Ostava, Czechoslovakia, now the Czech Republic) is a Czech professional ice hockey player, currently playing for the Milton Keynes Lightning in the EPIHL. Parez began playing in North America at Wyoming Seminary (Kingston, PA), a boarding school he attended for four years. After graduating from high school, Parez spent time in two American Junior programs: first with the Bismark Bobcats (North American Hockey League) and then with the Chicago Steel of the USHL. In his one and only season with Chicago, Parez managed more than 40 points in just over 60 games.

Parez then progressed to playing hockey at NCAA level for the University of Alaska Anchorage and proved to be a regular player for the team, featuring in 120 games in the four years he spent there, and totalling almost 80 points. After his University level career ended, Parez moved back to Europe and signed for the EIHL team the Manchester Phoenix as a replacement for departing forward Robin Gomez. Parez was again productive for the Phoenix, and in 24 games managed to grab 26 points.

Despite his excellent points to game ratio, Parez was not resigned in the summer by the Phoenix, and along with Phoenix team-mate Adam Radmall moved to play at the lower EPL level with the Milton Keynes Lightning. Parez has proved to be an excellent signing for the Lightning and has continued to rack up points. On June 27th 2008 it was announced that Ales would continue to play for Milton Keynes in the 08/09 season.
