Lombardi: Parse out for season, to have surgery

Scott Parse, who has played only nine games this season, will have season-ending hip surgery in the near future. Parse has a history of problems with his hips. He played five games last season before having hip surgery, returned late in the season but, those within the team said privately, was never 100-percent healthy.

Parse is scheduled to be an unrestricted free agent next summer. A sixth-round pick of the Kings in 2004, Parse has played 73 games over the past three seasons, with 14 goals and 16 assists.

[UPDATE: The above information about Parse’s surgery was provided by general manager Dean Lombardi. The team has officially said that Parse will travel to Nashville in early December to be evaluated by a specialist, after which a determination on surgery will be made.]
