Zach Parise, wife welcome twins

Maybe it’s something in the Minnesota water.

Following in the footsteps of Joe Mauer and his wife, the Minnesota Wild announded that Zach Parise and his wife, Alisha, had twins – Jaxson and Emelia. This past summer, the Mauers also had twins.

Mauer and Parise have even more in common as both are both from the Minneapolis area – Mauer grew up in St. Paul and Parise in Minneapolis.

Parise is currently on injured reserve with a foot injury. Parise, who was recently named to the U.S. Olympic team, has 15 goals and 12 assists this season after tallying 18 goals and 38 points in 48 games last season.
