Canadiens trade for toughness, lands Parros
The Montreal Canadiens added some toughness to their lineup Friday with the acquisition of right wing George Parros from Florida Panthers.

The Montreal Canadiens added some toughness to their lineup Friday with the acquisition of right wing George Parros from Florida Panthers in exchange for forward Philippe Lefebvre and a 2014 seventh-round draft pick.

In 39 games with the Panthers in 2012-13, Parros had one goal, two points and 57 penalty minutes. He has accrued 1,007 PIM in 452 career regular-season games spanning eight seasons with four different teams. He has 18 goals and 35 points in his career.

Lefebvre, 22, recorded four goals and seven points in 23 games with Montreal's American Hockey League affiliate, the Hamilton Bulldogs, this past season. He also had eight goals and 16 points in 28 games with the ECHL's Wheeling Nailers. The 5-foot-11, 175-pound wing signed a free-agent contract with Montreal on Sept. 15, 2009.

Quote of the Day

I've never seen anything like that. The great thing is I don't know how many times guys bailed me out where they had to score to keep it alive and they did every time. It was amazing. It's not the way we draw it up, to go 20 rounds here, but obviously it's a big win.
