Jordan Robert Parise (born September 19, 1982, in Minneapolis, Minnesota, U.S.) is an American professional ice hockey goaltender. He was not chosen in the NHL Entry Draft; he was signed to a contract by the New Jersey Devils on July 14, 2006. He is the son of former NHL player J. P. Parisé and the older brother of current Wild player Zach Parise.
Jordan played two seasons in the United States Hockey League with the Chicago Steel and Waterloo Blackhawks before entering the University of North Dakota. He played three seasons with the Fighting Sioux, leaving as the school's all-time leader in goals against average (2.14).
He played with the Devils' American Hockey League affiliate, the Lowell Devils, for 2 seasons from 2006 to 2008. Interestingly, two of his former teammates were Stephen Gionta and Mike Pandolfo; all of their brothers (Zach Parise, Brian Gionta, and Jay Pandolfo) played for the Devils in the NHL during that time, marking possibly the first time three sets of brothers played for the same system simultaneously. After a hip injury severely hampered his game in 2007-2008 , he was forced to sign overseas. He currently plays for EC KAC in the Erste Bank Hockey League after spending 13 games in the ECHL with the Wheeling Nailers. In the 2008-2009 season he played in Austria for EC Red Bull Salzburg.
