Parse out 4-5 months after surgery

As had been expected — initial post here — Kings winger Scott Parse had hip surgery yesterday in Nashville and is expected to be out for 4-5 months. Parse had two goals in nine games this season but the Kings had feared, since the summer, that Parse would require further surgery. He had the other hip repaired last season and missed all but five games. Parse is scheduled to be an unrestricted free agent next summer. The Kings will not place Parse on long-term injured reserve now, but still have that option if they need some minor salary-cap relief.
