The Montreal Canadiens confirmed Saturday’s report that Dale Weise will miss about 5-10 games with an upper body injury suffered during the 2016 Winter Classic.

Granted, they used slightly different terms, putting his absence at two-to-three weeks rather than estimating games, but it’s ultimately the same basic outlook.

Weise has been playing out of his mind so far this season, so this stings, especially for a Canadiens team that finally looked alive after a troubling end to 2015.
