Playing career

Parker is from Eagle River, Alaska playing high school hockey for the Chugiak Mustangs.

Parker earned his nickname, "The Sheriff", from his reputation as a feared fighter and enforcer. After playing several seasons in the WHL, Parker started his NHL career with the Colorado Avalanche in 1998 and was a member of their 2001 Stanley Cup Championship team.

Parker was acquired by San Jose for a fifth round selection in the 2003 NHL Entry Draft on June 21, 2003.[1] In 2005, Parker was struck in the head by the puck, and spent a long time off the ice recovering from the resulting concussion.

In a game against the Nashville Predators on March 11, 2006, Parker got involved in an altercation with Nashville defenceman Brendan Witt. Called for elbowing Nashville player Jordin Tootoo, Parker was ejected from the game after an outburst of emotion in the penalty box, including slamming his stick against the glass. As he was led off the ice, Parker jumped onto the glass between the two teams' benches and struck Witt several times. As a result, he was suspended for two games.[2]

On February 27, 2007, Parker was re-acquired by the Colorado Avalanche from the Sharks for a 6th round draft pick in the 2008 draft.[3]

On October 17, 2008, Parker was assigned to Colorado's affiliate the Lake Erie Monsters of the AHL.[4] In a rare conflict between the team and one of its own players, the Avalanche terminated Parker's contract on November 9, 2008 for insubordination for not reporting to the Monsters.[5]

During his time with the San Jose, he became a widely recognized fan favorite and many Chuck Norris jokes had Norris' name removed and replaced with Parker's.

Parker retired in early August 2009 and has since started a barbershop business with his wife in Castle Rock, Colorado.
