The Montreal Canadiens announced Wednesday that forward George Parros was released from the hospital after suffering a concussion in Tuesday night's game against the Toronto Maple Leafs. He will be out indefinitely.

Parros left the ice on a stretcher at 2:34 of the third period after hitting the ice hard during a fight with Toronto Maple Leafs forward Colton Orr. The game was interrupted at least 10 minutes while Parros was attended to and eventually taken off on a stretcher.

Quote of the Day

That's a really tough thing to play through; when you finally are thrown out there, the game is fast, intense, every single play matters, you've got to find a way to play through that and make smart plays. So it's a huge testament to [Vermette] and some other individuals in our locker room that are putting their own ego, their own wants and needs aside, and are ready for those opportunities when they do come.
