P. A. Parenteau RW MON 2 Months

According to TSN's Bob McKenzie, Colorado is "shopping" P. A. Parenteau.

He has two seasons left on a deal which pays him $4 million per year. In 55 games during the 2013-14 campaign, Parenteau notched 14 goals and 33 points. He also added three points in seven playoff contests. He was rumored to be on the trade block during the season, but the Avalanche kept him after losing Alex Tanguay to injury.

P. A. Parenteau found the back of the net in Colorado's 4-3 overtime win on Saturday.

Parenteau's goal came at 18:46 of the third period to force overtime. It was the 31-year-old forward's first career playoff point. He's endured a rough season as he had to deal with injuries and on-ice struggles that led to him spending some time as a healthy scratch. Getting to score a key goal in Game 5 though has to be a nice payoff for persevering.

P.A. Parenteau has not played well in Colorado's first-round series against Minnesota.

He has not registered a point in four games and has taken only eight shots on goal despite getting an average of 17:16 of ice time and plenty of power-play opportunities. There is some talk that Parenteau could be demoted with Joey Hishon taking his place on the team's second line.

P. A. Parenteau suffered a medial collateral ligament injury to his right knee in Monday's overtime win versus Winnipeg and he's expected to miss the rest of the regular season.

"We'll see for playoffs, but he will be out for four to six weeks," coach Patrick Roy said. "He was in a lot of pain, but P.A. is a great team guy and he wanted to give it a try. He got the puck on the power play and he couldn't go back." Parenteau sat out 10 games this season because of a MCL injury, but that was to his other knee.
