Parenteau was held pointless in Saturday's 2-1 regular-season finale against the Jets. Parenteau has not had much of an impact for the Preds after being acquired from the Devils at the trade deadline, missing 11 of a possible 19 games due to a finger injury and registering just a single assist. That said, Saturday was Parenteau's third consecutive game back in the lineup, and he looks to be healthy as the Preds enter the playoffs as one of the Western Conference's two wild-card teams. With just five points in 15 career playoff games, Parenteau should not jump off the page as a top pick in most playoff formats, but could deliver some late-round value if the Preds manage to steal a round or two.
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.
Parenteau (finger) was on the ice for warmups and will play against the Sharks on Sunday, Adam Vingan of The Tennessean reports. Parenteau will play his first game for Nashville since being traded from New Jersey. He has missed the past six games due to a finger injury. The 33-year-old winger has scored one goal and added four assists over his past five games, and this was all while averaging 12:40 of ice time. It'll be interesting to see where Parenteau fits in with the new club, but he is still of fantasy value in medium depth leagues.
Parenteau (finger) won't slot into Thursday's lineup. The veteran forward will miss his sixth straight game to this injury and still hasn't made his Nashville debut. With 27 points in 59 games this year, he's provided modest fantasy value. Parenteau's next chance to return will come Saturday in San Jose.
Parenteau (finger) is doubtful to return to action Tuesday against the Ducks. Parenteau has yet to suit up for his new club after joining Nashville at the trade deadline. Tuesday's clash will mark the fifth missed game for the veteran as he continues to work his way back from injury. In the interim, Austin Watson will remain on the Preds' fourth line.
