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

I mean, any of those 14 teams (in the lottery) it would have been an absolute honor. If I am selected by Edmonton it will be amazing, a dream come true. They have a lot of amazing young players there.
