MONTREAL — The Montreal canadiens has registered the name of the attacker Brendan Gallagher on the injured list because of a concussion and he will be absent for an indefinite period of time.
The head coach of the Canadian, Claude Julien, has confirmed on Thursday morning the nature of the injury suffered by Gallagher.
“He has suffered a concussion. We have no idea how long he will be absent, said Julien. It will all depend on how he recovers.”
Gallagher was injured on Tuesday, in the eventual defeat of 3-1 to the Canadian in the face of the Hurricanes in Carolina.
With a little over three minutes to go in the second period, Gallagher has received a fail Jordan Staal near the bench of his own. As he fell, Gallagher was struck in the head by the left knee of his team mate Ben Chiarot, then his head gave against the ice. He needed time to regain his senses and retreated to the locker room.
Gallagher was a 229th consecutive game in uniform. He had not missed a single match of the Canadian since February 11, 2017.
In 40 games this season, Gallagher has scored 15 goals and 17 helpers.
“This is another big loss,” admitted Julien. We have not been lucky lately with injuries. It is necessary to try to pass through it and win games.”
In addition to Gallagher, the Canadian is currently deprived of the services of forwards Jonathan Drouin (wrist), Joel Armia (hand), Paul Byron (knee) and Matthew Peca (leg).
Julien indicated that he was not to expect to see Armia, Drouin or Byron get back into the game before the bye week for the Habs, from 19 to 26 January.
