P. A. Parenteau will be back in the lineup on Monday night.

He hasn't played since Jan. 15 because of a concussion. Parenteau has produced six goals and 15 points in 40 contests this campaign.
Mar 2 - 3:32 PM

PA Parenteau has been practicing with his teammates and has been cleared to play, but will not dress against Toronto on Saturday night.

"I know we have a great team but I know when I'm 100 percent healthy I can definitely help them. I'm working really hard to get my spot back," Parenteau said. Through 40 games this season, he has 15 points, 20 PIMs, and 25 hits.
Feb 28 - 6:21 PM

Now that Christian Thomas has been returned to AHL Hamilton, look for PA Parenteau to make his return to Montreal's lineup on Saturday night versus Toronto.

Parenteau has not played since mid-January due to a concussion, but wasn't having a great season through his first 40 games. With just six goals, 15 points, 20 PIMs, and 25 hits, it's difficult to recommend Parenteau for your squad down the stretch.
Feb 28 - 12:36 AM

P.A. Parenteau (concussion) has received permission to start practicing again.

Parenteau missed three games in January because of a concussion and returned for two games before suffering the same injury again. He has now missed 16 consecutive games with the injury but it finally looks like he will make a return some time next week. The 31-year-old was having a disappointing season before going down. Parenteau has just six goals and 15 points in 40 games this season.
Feb 22 - 9:24 AM

P. A. Parenteau (concussion) is making progress, according to Canadiens coach Michel Therrien.

That being said, Parenteau isn't ready to start practicing with the Canadiens yet. He hasn't played since Jan. 15 and we don't expect him to return in the near future.
Feb 11 - 3:10 PM

P.A. Parenteau continues to skate on his own but there is still no timetable for his return from a concussion.

Given that he is recovering from a second concussion this season, Parenteau is taking it slow and the Canadiens are going to be extra cautious with him. Don't expect to see Parenteau in game action this month.
Feb 7 - 10:44 AM

Don't expect to see P.A. Parenteau in action this week.

The Habs are going to be very cautious with him as he is recovering from a second concussion this month. Consider Parenteau out indefinitely.
Jan 31 - 11:04 AM

P. A. Parenteau (concussion) won't be back in the lineup on Tuesday.

He is still sidelined with his second concussion this month, so he could be out for a while.
Jan 27 - 8:47 AM

PA Parenteau will miss his second straight game on Tuesday night against Nashville.

Parenteau is recovering from a concussion, with no timetable to speak of. He has six goals and 15 points through 40 games this season.
Jan 20 - 7:18 PM

P. A. Parenteau is dealing with concussion-like symptoms.

Parenteau missed Saturday's game with what was initially reported as an illness. Concussions don't come with a timetable in the same way a broken bone does, so we can't speculate on how long Parenteau will be absent. He didn't participate in Monday's practice. During his absence, it looks like Brendan Gallagher will get some playing time alongside Alex Galchenyuk and David Desharnais.
Jan 19 - 12:16 PM

PA Parenteau will miss another opportunity to strike vengeance against his former New York Islanders on Saturday night as he sits out due to illness.

Parenteau's illness is not considered serious, but with just six goals and 15 points thus far, his consideration for your lineup shouldn't be very serious once he returns either.
Jan 17 - 5:49 PM

P.A. Parenteau did not participate in the Canadiens' line rushes Saturday morning.

It is being reported that it is a maintenance morning off for the veteran winger. However, it does put Parenteau's playing status for Saturday night against the Islanders in question. We would reserve Parenteau as it looks like he could sit out.
Jan 17 - 11:06 AM

P.A. Parenteau will in fact return to the Canadiens lineup Wednesday night in Columbus.

Updating an earlier report, the 31-year-old winger will be back on the ice for Montreal. His morning skate went well and there will be no restrictions for Parenteau. It's been a difficult first year in Montreal as he's recorded just six goals and nine assists in 38 games played. He will play the wing Wednesday along side Brandon Prust and Alex Galchenyuk.
Jan 14 - 2:32 PM

P. A. Parenteau (concussion) is expected to be back in the lineup Wednesday night.

As long as he doesn't have any complications after the morning skate, he will draw back in after missing three games with a concussion. Parenteau is slated to skate on a line with Brandon Prust and Alex Galchenyuk.
