Parenteau served as a healthy scratch for Monday's game against the Coyotes.

The 33-year-old has been quiet since coming over in trade from New Jersey, failing to record a point while registering just four shots on goal in four games with his new club. Parenteau managed 13 goals and 14 assists to go with a dreadful minus-16 rating with the offensively challenged Devils, so there's a chance he could provide a savvy veteran scoring touch to the Preds' lineup down the stretch and into the playoffs. For now, however, he'll spend at least one game in the press box.
