News: Bournival (concussion) skated Thursday morning, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.
Impact: Bournival didn't suit up for AHL Hamilton after March 13 due to the head injury, but it sounds like he's nearly recovered. He could join the Canadiens for practice at some point in the coming days, but won't merit consideration for joining the lineup at any point during their postseason series. The 22-year-old skated in 29 games for the parent club during the regular season, tallying three goals and two assists.

News: Bournival was reassigned to AHL Hamilton on Monday, TSN's John Lu reports.
Impact: Forward P.A. Parenteau (concussion) will finally rejoin the lineup, and defenseman Jeff Petry was recently acquired in a trade. The Habs will thus reassign both Bournival and Greg Pateryn, freeing up room for a pair of proven veterans. Bournival only has five points through 29 NHL appearances this season, but he does have eight points in just seven AHL games.
