Scary scene at Habs practice today

Published January 2, 2023 at 4:41 PM

The Montreal Canadiens are currently in Nashville in preparation for their game tomorrow against the Predators.

During today's practice, we just witnessed a disturbing scene involving Brendan Gallagher.

"CH practice in Nashville. Gallagher remains lying on the ice moments after a check from Edmundson." - Jonathan Bernier

"Not a good sign for Gallagher. He had hurt his right leg in the first period after contact with Lars Eller in Washington." - J-F Chaumont

The CH's number 11 left his team's practice afterwards.

We'll keep you posted on any developments in Gally's case, but considering the lower body injury he suffered in the last game against the Washington Capitals, it's starting to get worrisome.

The 30 year old winger has been hit hard by multiple injuries since the beginning of his career and is simply unable to stay healthy for most of the season.

Obviously, this has a major impact on his performance, which is far from justifying his imposing $6.5M salary per season.

More details will follow.
