Parenteau scored a goal in Monday night's 4-2 loss to the Lightning.

It was Parenteau's seventh goal of the season and just his first since Nov. 28 against Buffalo. Of course, he missed a good deal of time dealing with a couple of concussions early in this calendar year. Parenteau said he's feeling more comfortable after his lengthy absence during January and February.

Parenteau had an assist in Saturday night's 3-1 win over the Islanders. It was his first point since Dec. 23.

The long stretch of point futility is due to Parenteau having to deal with two separate concussions, but he's back now skating as a top-6 forward on a line with Tomas Plekanec and Alex Galchenyuk. The three combined on a nice tic-tac-toe play resulting in Plekanec's first-period goal Saturday. He also played more than three minutes on the power play. He's not a must-play, but he's skating with some talented players.

Parenateau returned to the lineup Thursday after being a healthy scratch for four games. He had zero shots on net and was minus-1 in 16:34 in a 5-2 loss to Ottawa.

In activating Parenteau, head coach Michel Therrien was hoping to spark an anemic offense that's tallied just eight goals in the past six games.

Parenteau will return to the lineup Thursday against the Senators, John Lu of TSN Montreal reports.

Parenteau was activated from injured reserve in late February following a long absence due to a concussion, but he's only appeared in one of the Habs' six games since that time. Though he'll slot in on the team's second line Thursday, Parenteau will likely need to prove himself production right away in order to maintain his spot in the lineup. Brian Flynn will be scratched Thursday to make room for Parenteau.

Parenteau will be a healthy scratch for Saturday night's game against the Coyotes, the Montreal Gazette reports.

Parenteau will be a healthy scratch for the third straight game. His return from a concussion coincided with Montreal's acquisition of forwards Torrey Mitchell and Brian Flynn and coach Michel Therrien is trying to integrate the newcomers, rather than find ice time for an inconsistent Parenteau.

Parenteau returned to the lineup Monday night after an extended absence due to a concussion. He skated 10:21 in a 4-0 loss to the Sharks.

Parenteau started the game on the fourth line and was then moved around as head coach Michel Therrien experimented with combinations in an effort to stoke some sort of offense. We'll need to see how Therrien adjusts his lines after the Canadiens added forwards Torrey Mitchell and Brian Flynn. Parenteau will fit somewhere on the third or fourth lines for now.

Parenteau will rejoin the lineup for Monday's game against San Jose, NHL.com's Arpon Basu

After missing six weeks of action due to a concussion, Parenteau was a healthy scratch for Saturday's game against the Maple Leafs. He may be limited to a spot on the fourth line in his first game since Jan. 15.

Parenteau (concussion) was activated from injured reserve, but will serve as a healthy scratch for Saturday's game against the Maple Leafs, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.

Parenteau has been cleared to play for a few days now, but with the Canadiens winning their last three games, coach Michel Therrien is reluctant to break up his lines. The winger, who has been sidelined since Jan. 2 with the concussion, might make his return to the lineup Monday in San Jose.

Parenteau (concussion) is expected to return to the Canadiens' lineup Saturday against the Maple Leafs, Dave Stubbs of the Montreal Gazette reports.

The Canadiens announced that earlier Friday that Christian Thomas was reassigned to AHL Hamilton, a move that likely wouldn't have been made if the team didn't anticipate the return of Parenteau. The winger has been cleared of concussion symptoms for a few days now, but his return to the action won't be verified until he's officially activated from injured reserve, which would likely come following Saturday's morning skate.
