Montreal Canadiens prospect Ryan Poehling’s season is over as the team announced he will require surgery for a wrist injury.

The recovery timeline will be announced after the surgery is completed.

Poehling has had a great season for the American Hockey League’s Laval Rocket, leading the team in scoring in his second professional season. The 22-year-old has 11 goals and 14 assists in 28 games this season. He had five goals and eight assists in 36 AHL games last year.

Poehling’s injury means that the entire line of him, Joseph Blandisi, and Joël Teasdale are out for the rest of the season. The Rocket have clinched the Canadian division, but this also rules them out for any playoff appearance in the NHL as well.

The Canadiens first-round pick in 2017 has four goals and one assist in 28 career NHL games.

Despite the injury set back, he likely will be back in the NHL picture at the team’s training camp, health permitting.
