Reports: Gonchar, Parenteau expected back in Canadiens lineup

The Montreal Canadiens could get veteran defenseman Sergei Gonchar and veteran forward P.A. Parenteau back in the lineup Saturday, according to multiple reports.

On Friday, the Habs sent blue liner Jarred Tinordi and forward Christian Thomas to the Hamilton Bulldogs in the AHL. Those transactions appear to be paving the way for Gonchar and Parenteau to get back in game action, with the Habs hosting the Toronto Maple Leafs on Saturday.

Gonchar hasn’t played since Feb. 14, when he was slammed from behind into the boards by former Maple Leafs forward David Clarkson. Of course, Clarkson was traded to Columbus on Thursday.

Parenteau last played Jan. 15 and has been dealing with concussion issues.
