Following a fight with J.T. Miller, Ben Chiarot went directly to the locker room, tossing his helmet along the way. The Canadiens have announced it was his last bit of action on Wednesday night.

Chiarot has been Shea Weber’s defence partner on the most-used pairing all season long. If it is a serious hand injury from connecting with Miller’s helmet, it means we will see some alterations for tomorrow’s game in Calgary, with Victor Mete likely drawing in.
