News: Parenteau scored a goal in Sunday's intra-squad scrimmage Sunday, Hockey Inside Out reports.
Impact: It was the second straight scrimmage that Parenteau has found the net; he scored twice Saturday. Head coach Michel Therrien has not indicated where he sees a best fit for Parenteau, but the right winger appears headed for a top-6 role.

News: Andrighetto scored a goal on a penalty shot during Montreal's intra-squad scrimmage Saturday, the Montreal Gazette reports.
Impact: Andrighetto showcased some of his offensive skill, forcing a hooking penalty that led to his penalty shot goal, but the 5-9 forward was also out-muscled in one-on-one battles and was on ice for three of his opponents' goals. That sums up Andrighetto at this stage of his career -- he has nifty offensive skills but needs to work on the physical part of the game as well as defense. If he were to stick with Montreal, it would have to be in a third- or fourth-line role, where he would have to play a more physical role than he's accustomed to.

News: Parenteau scored two goals in an intra-squad scrimmage Saturday, Hockey Inside Out reports. He skated on a line with David Desharnais and Max Pacioretty.
Impact: Parenteau, who was acquired in the offseason from Colorado, will be part of a few line combinations during the preseason to see where he fits best, so we're not jumping to any conclusions because he skated on the Habs' top line Saturday. Head coach Michel Therrien said he was pleased with Parenteau's conditioning; he and general manager Marc Bergevin talked to Parenteau about reporting to camp in good shape when he was acquired.

News: Pateryn is competing with fellow prospects Nathan Beaulieu and Jarred Tinordi for the final spot available on defense, the Montreal Gazette reports.
Impact: Pateryn is the forgotten defensive prospect as both Beaulieu and Tinordi were first-round draft picks. They've also played more games in Montreal than Pateryn, including postseason action. Pateryn offers a mix of Beaulieu's offensive skills and Tinordi's physicality in his own end, and was the best of the three with a plus-5 with the Hamilton Bulldogs of the American Hockey League last season.

News: Bouillon will skate with the Canadiens during training camp, the Montreal Gazette reports.
Impact: Bouillon, who was with the Canadiens in 2013-14, was not signed in the offseason. If he makes the opening-night roster, it would be mean something has gone wrong with the development of younger defensemen like Nathan Beaulieu, Jarred Tinordi or Greg Pateryn.

News: Galchenyuk will open training camp playing center, the Montreal Gazette reports. Groomed as a center at the junior level, Galchenyuk's played primarily at left wing in his first two NHL seasons.
Impact: The Canadiens are still deep at center, so we expect Galchenyuk to move back to wing by the time the regular season opens. It appears having him play center in training camp is planting the seed for an eventual move to the position.

News: McCarron, who is skating with teammates at Montreal's rookie development camp, admitted to showing up out of shape last season after the Canadiens selected him in the first round of the 2013 draft, Hockey Inside Out reports. "Now I know what it takes," he said. "I know how much hard work it takes, and so now I'm back here ready to go."
Impact: McCarron skated with the London Knights of the Ontario Hockey League, but even that level of play was more than he expected after spending two seasons with the U.S. National Development Team. He had a disappointing first half of the 2013 season, but did make noticeable improvements in the second half.

News: Bozon attended the first day of Montreal's rookie camp, Hockey Inside Out reports.
Impact: Bozon made headlines earlier this year when the contracted a bout of meningitis and wound up in a hospital for close to a month. He lost 40 pounds, but recovered enough to train with the French under-22 team. He's expected to skate with the Hamilton Bulldogs of the American Hockey Leauge.
