Lower body injury for Brendan Gallagher. He’s day to day. @CanadiensMTL— Renaud Lavoie (@renlavoietva) December 31, 2021
Brendan Gallagher was missing from the Montreal Canadiens’ bench when the team returned from the second intermission versus the Carolina Hurricanes. The team has announced he won’t be returning to the game.

Brendan Gallagher will not return to tonight's game.
Right before the match began, it was revealed that Jonathan Drouin was unable to go, dealing with a non-COVID illness. It’s possible that Gallagher is experiencing the same symptoms, but we’ll have to wait for further word on his status.

The Canadiens have one game left on this road trip before a long pause from a slate of rescheduled games. They will need to completely drain their depth to get a roster together for Saturday afternoon’s game in Florida.
