The rookie has been sidelined following an upper-body injury

NHL: Toronto Maple Leafs at Montreal Canadiens Eric Bolte-USA TODAY Sports

The Canadiens have announced that rookie Artturi Lehkonen has been placed on the injured reserve.

The event leading to this situation is still somewhat of a mystery, seeing as no one has been able to identify the play in which Lehkonen sustained the injury.

With Lehkonen’s injury, the Canadiens will have to call up someone from the St. John’s IceCaps, meaning we could see one of Charles Hudon, Sven Andrighetto, Chris Terry , Nikita Scherbak, or even Michael McCarron up with the Habs by 5 pm EST.

Update: Lehkonen will be out of action for one week.
