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.
Parenteau (finger) will not travel to D.C. for Thursday's game against the Capitals, Andrew Gross of The Record reports. The journeyman sustained his injury upon blocking a shot in Saturday's game against the Rangers, and now he's about to miss his second consecutive contest. While there's no denying that there is some offensive flair found in Parenteau's style of play -- he's picked up 27 points (13 goals, 14 assists) in 59 games this season -- the winger has been a defensive liability with a minus-16 rating. Perhaps this injury layoff will also allow him to clear his head.
