Canadiens' Brendan Gallagher to miss 8 weeks due to fractured hand
Mon, 09 Jan 2017 20:23:25 +0000
Montreal, QC, Canada (4E Sports) - The Montreal Canadiens announced that forward Brendan Gallagher will miss at least eight weeks after suffering a fractured left hand during the game against the Dallas Stars Wednesday.
The team said Gallagher underwent surgery Thursday in Montreal. Gallagher left Wednesday's game early after being struck in the hand by a Shea Weber shot.
The 24-year-old Gallagher, who missed 17 games in 2015-16 after breaking two fingers blocking a Johnny Boychuk shot, has registered six goals and 18 points in 39 games this season.
"We obviously feel really bad for him, two years in a row," said captain Max Pacioretty . "But, he's in good hands and good spirits, so we're hoping to get him back as soon as possible."
