Montreal’s Parros suffers 2nd concussion in fight
Montreal Canadiens tough guy George Parros has sustained a
fighting-related concussion for the second time this season.
Parros was stunned by a pair of late punches in a fight with
Eric Boulton in Montreal’s 1-0 overtime road win over the New York
Islanders on Saturday. Parros was wobbly getting to his feet, but
skated off the ice.
He didn’t return to Saturday’s game and was a scratch for
Montreal’s 2-1 home loss to Florida on Sunday. Canadiens coach
Michel Therrien confirmed after the game that Parros suffered a
concussion and will be evaluated this week.
Parros missed the first month of the season after being injured
in a fight with Toronto’s Colton Orr in the opener.
Parros was knocked unconscious after a tussle with Orr brought
him tumbling to the ice.
