It appears P.A. Parenteau will draw back into the Montreal Canadiens lineup tonight when they play host to the Ottawa Senators.
Parenteau, who has missed time this season due to a concussion, was a healthy scratch for a fourth consecutive game on Tuesday night as the Montreal Canadiens were blanked 1-0 by the Tampa Bay Lightning.
Parenteau’s absence from the Habs’ lineup prompted his agent to take to Twitter postgame.
Parenteau has six goals and 15 points in 41 games this season while averaging 14:49 in time on ice.
The 31-year-old skated alongside Alex Galchenyuk and Tomas Plekanec at the team’s morning skate Thursday.
It’s not the first time Walsh has been outspoken about a player’s ice time.
During the 2011-12 season Walsh voiced his displeasure over then Columbus Blue Jackets’ forward Derick Brassard being a healthy scratch.
Since Walsh had success with Parenteau, TSN’s Gord Miller is hoping he can help him as well.
Ottawa native Ryan Spooner scored twice as the Bruins defeated the Senators 3-1 Tuesday night.

Boston Bruins’ forward Ryan Spooner opened the scoring at 1:02 of the second period beating a screened Craig Anderson for his second goal of the season.
Spooner now has at least a point in six straight games.

The 23-year-old now has three goals and four assists during the point streak.
