Media Members Scrap During Zach Parise’s Press Conference (Video)

zach parise press conference fightWhen the Stanley Cup Finals get underway at the Prudential Center tonight, Zach Parise will be looking to dodge as many checks from Los Angeles Kings’ captain Dustin Brown as he possibly can.  In the meantime, he was forced to dodge microphones and notepads after a fight broke out between reporters during his Media Day press conference on Tuesday.

While attempting to field a question, Parise was nearly struck by a errant microphone before being hit in the arm with a notepad, as the two reporters jostled for microphone positioning.  And just when it appeared as though things had settled down, Parise was nearly struck with the notepad once again, causing him to smile before asking “do we need to start this over in a little bit, or what?”

Throughout the course of the 2011-12 NHL season, members of the media have often found themselves discussing whether or not fighting belongs in the game of hockey.  I’ll tell you one place where it certainly doesn’t belong: at a press-conference!

Here is a look at Parise’s awkward Media Day presser.
