Early in the first period of the game between the Montreal Canadiens and Washington Capitals, Xavier Ouellet was ridden into the end boards, and got up labouring. He had difficulty getting to the bench, and went right to the dressing room. He will not return to the game.

After just trading away Marco Scandella this week, the Canadiens had been forced to call up Christian Folin for the game because of an injury to Victor Mete on Tuesday. They may have to dip into the AHL depth once more to get up to six healthy bodies for Saturday’s game against the Ottawa Senators.
