CH: season over for Brendan Gallagher?

CH: season over for Brendan Gallagher?


The Montreal Canadiens have offered some medical updates on Twitter following Thursday's loss to the New York Rangers, and it looks like Brendan Gallagher's season could be in jeopardy.

The valiant Habs forward will be out for another three to four weeks. If he does return to action in a month, the Habs will only have two games left in the campaign.

Gallagher is still hampered by a lower-body injury. He has been spotted several times with an orthopedic boot on his foot.

This season, the 30-year-old Albertan has been limited to 25 games. He has been affected by several health problems in recent years.

As for him, Kirby Dach will be absent “for an indefinite period”. The exact nature of his lower body injury is not known, but he has not played since February 14.

Finally, Arber Xhekaj's shoulder surgery, on March 1, went smoothly. He should be able to participate in the next training camp.
