Canadiens Injury Update: P.A. Parenteau suffers lower-body injury, leaves game

Montreal Canadiens forward P.A. Parenteau left the team's final preseason game on Saturday and did not return, as confirmed on the team's official Twitter account. Officially announced as a lower-body injury, Parenteau left to the dressing room in the first period after receiving a shot near his foot or ankle area.

Parenteau is an offseason acquisition for the Habs. The team received him in a trade with the Colorado Avalanche, departing with forward Daniel Briere.

After the game, head coach Michel Therrien said that Parenteau "should be fine", which is good news for the team.

The 31-year-old veteran appeared in 55 games for the Avs last season. He scored 14 goals and added 19 assists. He finished the season with a plus-3 record, and averaged nearly 17 minutes per game.

The Canadiens open the 2014-15 season against the Toronto Maple Leafs on October 8, which gives Parenteau several days to recover. During training camp and preseason, he was playing on the team's top line with David Desharnais and Max Pacioretty.
