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.
