  • Montreal Canadiens head coach Claude Julien announced the news on Monday morning that both Jonathan Drouin and Paul Byron will undergo surgery and will be out of the lineup indefinitely.
  • Jonathan Drouin was injured on Friday against the Washington Capitals on a play that Julien said was unrelated to the Alexander Ovechkin hit, but that rather occurred in the third period, and he was unable to complete the game.
  • Drouin was placed on injured reserve Saturday with an upper-body sustained in Friday’s 5-2 win over the Washington Capitals.
  • He took a big hit from Alexander Ovechkin in the second period and initially left the game but later returned for the third.
  • Julien said Saturday that Drouin’s injury was sustained after he returned to the game and it was not related to Ovechkin’s hit.
  • In 19 games this season, Drouin has seven goals and 15 points.
  • The Canadiens, who played Saturday’s game against the New Jersey Devils without Drouin and Byron, called up ahead of that game.
  • Hudon was without a point in 7:55 of ice time against the Devils.
