Jonathan Parker (Born September 25, 1991) is an American-born professional hockey player[1][2] currently playing with the Colorado Eagles of the ECHL.

Playing career[edit]

Parker was the first San Diego-born player ever to sign an NHL contract. In 2010-2011 Parker became the highest scoring forward for the Prince Albert Raiders (WHL) in 10 seasons, also going in the record books for most points by an American next to greats like Mike Modano. In 2011, following his teams playoff series loss, he made his pro debut with the Bakersfield Condors (ECHL). On October 6, 2011 he signed a three year entry level contract with the Buffalo Sabres of the NHL. Parker currently plays for the Colorado Eagles (ECHL), the Calgary Flames affiliate.

On March 5, 2014, Parker, along with his teammate Brayden McNabb, and two draft picks, were traded by the Buffalo Sabres to the Los Angeles Kings for right winger Hudson Fasching and defenseman Nicolas Deslauriers.[3]

At the completion of his contract, Parker was released to free agency by the Kings. He signed a contract with Swedish HockeyAllsvenskan club, Malmö Redhawks, on August 7, 2014.[4] He mutually terminated his contract agreement with Malmo on August 31, without featuring for the club. On September 25, 2014, his 23rd birthday, Parker signed a one-year contract to return to the Colorado Eagles of the ECHL.[5]
