Montreal Canadiens David Savard Out Six To Eight Weeks With A Fractured Hand

The Montreal Canadiens announced that defenceman David Savard will be out for six to eight weeks with a fractured hand suffered in Monday Night’s game vs Buffalo Sabres. Savard has two assists in five games this season for the Canadiens. This is devastating news for a Canadiens team that already has injuries on the blue line, as Kaiden Guhle is day-to-day with an upper-body injury, and Chris Wideman is still out with no timetable for his return. Not only does the Savard injury hurt the Habs on the blueline, but it a

lso leaves them with one less experienced defenceman, which Montreal is very slim on at the moment as Mike Matheson is the only Habs defender who has played more than 100 career NHL games. On the bright side, Justin Barron, who has gotten an opportunity with the Habs, has taken full advantage of it and has put up two goals in his last two games with the Canadiens after putting up four goals and 11 assists for 15 points last year when he was up with Montreal.

With Savard going down, the Montreal Canadiens called up Gustav Lindstrom on an emergency basis, and will likely be with the team until Guhle is able to return to the lineup. Lindstrom was acquired by the Canadiens in the trade that saw Jeff Petry going to the Detroit Red Wings. In four games with Laval this season, Lindstrom has yet to find the scoreboard and made his debut with the Canadiens on Tuesday Night in the Habs 5-2 loss to the Devils.
