Daniel Paille will take Brad Marchand's spot on the Bruins' second line during the latter's two-game suspension.
He will skate alongside Patrice Bergeron and Reilly Smith. Paille has modest offensive capabilites which is why, unless he is needed as a fill in, he regularly toils on Boston's third or fourth lines. He is not worth rostering. Jan 17 - 8:58 AM

Daniel Paille has been skating alongside Patrice Bergeron and Milan Lucic.

He picked up an assist in Wednesday's overtime win over Pittsburgh, but he didn't get on the scoresheet on Thursday versus New Jersey. "I'm just trying to not take it for granted and capitalize on the chances that I do have," said Paille. "I'm not going to score every time, but the thing is to stay focused and positive about it. I know that in time, if I get a chance to stay with them for a little bit longer, I'll try and make the best of it." He has one goal and eight points in 42 matches this year.

Daniel Paille (illness) didn't skate Tuesday.

Paille should be considered day-to-day with a virus. He still could be available for Thursday's contest versus Chicago.

Daniel Paille has been skating with Ryan Spooner and Simon Gagne during the early part of training camp.

"I think everyone wants that," he said referring to the possibility of a bigger role with the Bruins this year. "That being said, I want to maintain the role that I have. But everyone wants to do more. I'm going to try and take advantage of that opportunity if it comes to me." The line he's currently on probably won't be one that opens the regular season, but Paille does stand a chance to skate on the third line in 2014-15.

There's a chance that Daniel Paille could move up from the fourth line this season.

Boston's fourth line won't have Shawn Thornton on it this year after he was permitted to leave as a free agent. The team's third and fourth lines could undergo some changes as a result. "I know my role here on the team and I have no complaints playing on the fourth line, but if I get to play that third-line role, then I’ll have no complaints there, either," said Paille. He has moved up before as an injury replacement.

Daniel Paille skated on the third line in Boston's Game 2 victory against Montreal.

He scored his first goal of the postseason to open the scoring in the Bruins' 5-3 win. Paille logged 11:51 of ice time in his second game back from a suspected concussion. Jordan Caron skated on the fourth line in his place.

Daniel Paille is officially listed as a game-time decision for Game 1 against Montreal on Thursday night.

"Yesterday, and going into this morning's skate, I feel like I'm back to where I need to be," Paille said. He's healthy enough to play and he'll probably draw into the lineup after missing the opening round with a suspected concussion.

Daniel Paille (upper body) is expected to be available when Boston's second-round series against Montreal begins on Thursday.

Coach Claude Julien said that Paille should be back for Game 1 after he skated with the team on Tuesday.

Daniel Paille (concussion) received clearance to warm up with the team before Game 5.

He could be available to play at the start of Round 2 versus Montreal. Paille hasn't appeared in a game since April 12 when he suffered a suspected concussion against Buffalo.
Tue, Apr 29, 2014 06:58:00 AM

It is unclear whether Daniel Paille will dress for Game 5 against the Red Wings Saturday afternoon.

Paille was cleared for contact earlier this week and seems to have recovered from a concussion that has sidelined him since April 12th. He certainly looked healthy enough to play in Friday's practice. Don't be surprised if Paille returns to action for Saturday's 3:00 pm matinee. If he does, it will likely be in place of Jordan Caron.
Sat, Apr 26, 2014 08:58:00 AM

Daniel Paille (upper body) got back on the ice with his teammates for Thursday's morning skate.

"He's inching toward the right side, I would say," coach Claude Julien said. Paille has been cleared for contact, so he is getting close to being available to play for the first time since April 12.
Fri, Apr 25, 2014 07:00:00 AM

Daniel Paille (upper body) skated on Wednesday.

He took Tuesday's session off after he returned to the ice on Monday for an optional skate. Coach Claude Julien didn't provide an update on Paille's availability, so consider him day-to-day and doubtful to play Thursday in Game 4.
Thu, Apr 24, 2014 09:47:00 AM

Daniel Paille (upper body) participated in an optional practice on Monday.

He didn't take part in contact drills and it sounds like he's still a ways away from returning. "Dan Paille's out there right now skating, so that's the right direction, but we'll have to go about our injuries just like we normally would, in a safe and proper manner," said coach Claude Julien.
Tue, Apr 22, 2014 07:26:00 AM

Daniel Paille did not practice this week and is unlikely to play Friday in Game 1 of the opening round of the playoffs against Detroit.

He is still experiencing concussion-like symptoms. Jordan Caron skated in Paille's place on the Bruins' fourth line during scrimmages Thursday and will likely take his place in Friday's contest against the Red Wings. Consider Paille day-to-day until further notice.
