Major Canadiens announcement involving Mike Matheson

Published December 19, 2022 at 4:14 PM

In the last few minutes, the Montreal Canadiens organization announced a major news involving defenseman Michael Matheson.

"Defenseman Mike Matheson has remained in Montreal for a medical follow-up. He will be out indefinitely with a lower body injury." - Montreal Canadiens

From what we can understand, Matheson, who had been injured for a few days, before unexpectedly returning for last Saturday's game, worsened his injury again, which had clearly not fully healed before returning to play against the Toronto Maple Leafs.

The latter remained in Montreal and will miss the next few games, but what is most surprising is the fact that the schedule is indefinite.

It smells like a long term absence for Matheson, and that's bad news for the Montreal Canadiens.

The 28-year-old Quebecer has 6 points in 10 games this season with the Tricolore. Unfortunately for him, he has been struggling to get healthy since the beginning of the season, having already missed a large portion of the regular season with an injury sustained in the pre-season.

Will the CH need to recall a defenseman? All indications are that it will.

More details will follow!
