Parenteau will miss Saturday's game against the Islanders due to an illness, Jessica Rusnak of TSN Radio 690 reports.

Parenteau was feeling under the weather Saturday morning and didn't participate in the team's gameday skate. Coach Michel Therrien ruled him out shortly thereafter, and it looks like Christian Thomas will assume his spot in the lineup as a result. Parenteau has been largely invisible for the Habs even when healthy this season, contributing a mere six goals and 15 points in 40 games.

Parenteau opened the game on the third line and was toggled to the fourth as part of an in-game adjustment.

Parenteau (upper body) skated on the third line at Monday's practice, the Montreal Gazette reports. He's missed the last three games due to the injury.

Parenteau let it slip after practice that his upper-body injury was actually a mild concussion and that he's been going through the NHL's protocol governing head injuries. We look for him to return to the ice Wednesday night against Columbus.

Parenteau (upper body) skated with the Canadiens during Saturday's morning session, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.

The team has already ruled out Parenteau from playing Saturday against the Penguins, but his participation in team activities suggests he's coming along nicely in his recovery. After a few more practices, it looks like Parenteau could be trending toward an activation in advance of Wednesday's game in Columbus.

Parenteau (upper body) is making progress, but he will not play in Saturday's game against the Penguins.

Parenteau skated prior to Thursday's practice, so his next step is likely to rejoin practice with the team. He may stand a chance to return to games next week, but he won't be available over the weekend.

Parenteau (upper body) skated prior to Thursday's practice, the Montreal Gazette reports.

Parenteau's situation is a bit muddled. The roster at the team's home page has flagged him as on injured reserve, but there's been no reporting of it. Supporting the notion that Parenteau is indeed on IR, the Canadiens recalled forward Christian Thomas from AHL Hamilton on Thursday. But now we learn that he skated prior to Thursday's practice.
