The New York Islanders are interested in signing veteran forward Zach Parise and defenseman Ryan Suter — two mainstays of the Minnesota Wild that were bought out earlier this offseason — as first reported by Larry Brooks of the New York Post and later confirmed by amNewYork Metro. 

The Islanders’ roster is in the process of noticeable tweaks to the core of a roster that had remained relatively unchanged for the better part of the previous two seasons. Over the last week, they’ve parted ways with Nick Leddy and Andrew Ladd before losing first-line winger Jordan Eberle to the Seattle Kraken in the Expansion Draft on Wednesday night.
