Jordan Robert Parise (born September 19, 1982) is an American retired professional ice hockey goaltender. He is the son of former NHL player J. P. Parisé and the older brother of Minnesota 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). While in college Jordan and teammate Drew Stafford formed a band called Red Seal Perch. They recorded a hit song titled "Fabian".[1]

Parise was signed to a contract by the New Jersey Devils on July 14, 2006. He played with the Devils' American Hockey League affiliate, the Lowell Devils, for 2 seasons from 2006 to 2008. 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 2007–08,[2] he was forced to sign overseas. In the 2008–09 season he played in Austria for EC Red Bull Salzburg. Parise returned to North America for the 2009-10 ECHL season. He signed with the Wheeling Nailers and was primarily used as a backup goalie, seeing only 13 appearances during the season. Parise finished the season with Klagenfurt AC of the EBHL.

On August 21, 2012, Parise signed a one-year contract with HC Valpellice of the Italian Serie A.[3] On September 17, 2013 he announced his retirement.[4]
