Jonathan Drouin suffered an injury against the Nashville Predators and missed Tuesday’s game against the Winnipeg Jets. The upper-body injury will keep him out until the NHL All-Star Break. That’s also the same timeline for Joel Armia (upper-body).
Jake Allen will be out for at least one more week due to his upper-body injury.
Jake Evans (lower-body) will be out eight-10 weeks but the injury will not require surgery.
The Canadiens have Rafaël Harvey-Pinard and Rem Pitlick recalled on an emergency basis and it does not appear that they will be back in Laval any time soon.
