The Montreal Canadiens will be without gritty forward Brandon Prust for four weeks, the club announced this morning.
Prust apparently suffered a right shoulder injury Saturday versus Nashville.
Already without enforcer George Parros (concussion), Prust’s extended absence will test the Habs’ team toughness even further.
Forwards Patrick Holland and Michael Blunden have been recalled from AHL Hamilton.
Montreal’s next game is Tuesday versus Edmonton.
