Netminder Parris Duffus played one game for the Phoenix Coyotes in 1996-97. He was a top goalie in college and went on to enjoy a fair bit of success in the minors.

Born in Denver, Colorado, Duffus was taken 180th overall by the St. Louis Blues after a strong year with the junior Melfort Mustangs. He then spent two years at Cornell University and was named to the ECAC second all-star team and NCAA East first all-american squad.

Duffus spent his first four years as a pro in the minors and joined the Winnipeg Jets as a free agent in 1995. He reached double figures in wins four straight years and was transferred to the Coyotes when Winnipeg relocated. The young netminder played half a game for Phoenix in 1996-97 before splitting the next season between HPK Hameenliina of Finland and the IHL's Cincinnati Cyclones. After playing with Jokerit Helsinki in 1998-99, Duffus dressed for three games with the IHL's Fort Wayne Komets the next year before retiring.
