Today’s Where Are They Now feature is on the smooth skating Steve Parson. Parson was very good with the puck and could fly in off the wing with an excellent shot and from the blue-line in, was one of the more dangerous Frontenacs to ever dawn the black and gold. One of the classiest and more dignified Frontenacs in team history, Parson recorded 81 goals and 138 assists for 219 points in 169 career games in a Frontenacs uniform, that’s good for 18th in the all time Kingston franchise history. Prior to arriving in Kingston, Parson tallied another 106 points over two and a half season’s in Owen Sound, for a career OHL total of 325 points. Steve was a solid playoff performer as well, adding 11 goals and 25 points in 18 post season games for the Fronts.
Today Steve Parson works in the financial and insurance field and resides in Guelph, Ontario and lists winning the Kelly Cup as one of his biggest hockey memories. Winning the Kelly Cup in the East Coast League, playing for Charleston in South Carolina for Coach Rick Vaive and owner Jerry Zucker is definitely one of my favorite memories, said Parson. My favorite Kingston memory unfortunately is losing out to Peterborough in the Leyden Division Finals in 92/93. It was an awesome ride while it lasted and a lot of fun to get the city behind us the way they did. It’s a ride I’ll never forget.
The same 92/93 team in Kingston is by far the best team I’ve ever played on and just because of all the talent we had, like Gratton, Corpse, Lindros, Rivet, Ling, Kilger and Lamothe and Moss in net. Just a great group of guys and a great team to be a part of, said Parson.
Coach Dave and Mike Allison were awesome in my time in Kingston and are my favorite coaches, because they were able to raise my game to another level.
I loved the Frontenac fans, they were awesome because they yelled at you if they knew you could do better and supported you both on and off the ice, said Parson. I’d also love to say hi to my billets Rick and Michelle and their families. They were a huge help while I lived in Kingston and I will never forget them, said Parson.
The only other thing I’d like to say is, Go Fronts Go!!! concluded, #27 Steve Parson
