Phillip Danault would need to be stretchered off after taking a puck to the head on a Zdeno Chara slap shot.

BROSSARD, Que. — Montreal Canadiens forward Phillip Danault participated in his first full practice on Monday since suffering a concussion on Jan. 13.

Danault resumed skating in the first week of February, participated in his first optional skate this past Saturday, and he will travel with the Canadiens on their upcoming road trip through Colorado, Arizona, Las Vegas and Philadelphia.

Danault has seven goals and 16 assists for 23 points in 43 games this season. He has missed the last 12 games after being struck in the head by a slapshot from defenceman Zdeno Chara in the second period of a 4-3 loss to the Boston Bruins.
