Canadiens' Parros sustains second concussion

Sunday, 12.15.2013 / 9:23 PM / News

By Arpon Basu - Managing Editor LNH.com

MONTREAL -- Montreal Canadiens forward George Parros has a concussion and will be evaluated on a daily basis, coach Michel Therrien announced Sunday following a 2-1 loss at home to the Florida Panthers.

Parros left the Canadiens' 1-0 overtime win on the road against the New York Islanders on Saturday after a fight with Eric Boulton at 2:01 of the first period.

This is the second concussion of the season for Parros, who had not been diagnosed with a concussion over the first eight seasons of his career.

Parros missed 12 games with a concussion sustained on opening night against the Toronto Maple Leafs when his head hit the ice during a fight with Colton Orr.

Quote of the Day

This is a big year for us in a lot of ways. You can see Garth and management really trying to find that solution to get us into the playoffs and consistently have that. The pressure is great. You have to enjoy it. It just means there's a great opportunity ahead of you.

— Islanders captain John Tavares
