Paille (concussion) at morning skate

3/12/2014

MONTREAL -- Bruins forward Daniel Paille (concussion) participated in the team’s optional morning skate on Wednesday at Bell Centre, but he’ll remain sidelined for the next two games.

Paille, who suffered the injury early in the first period of Sunday’s 5-2 win over the Florida Panthers, could return to game action on Saturday against the Carolina Hurricanes at TD Garden.

“We felt it was a real minor concussion, but the protocol is what it is and you have to respect that and right now he’s just going through the stages and doing very well,” said Bruins coach Claude Julien. “Today he skated with no contact and hopefully we’ll move on to the next level by tomorrow.”

Paille showed no ill effects during Wednesday’s skate. Overall, he has nine goals and seven assists for 16 points, including a plus-9 rating in 57 games this season. He missed seven games in December due to a concussion.
