Canadiens' Brendan Gallagher: Expected to miss eight weeks
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Gallagher underwent surgery for a fractured left hand and is expected to be out at least eight weeks.

Gallagher is a perennial point-packer for the high-flying Habs, so losing him until March will be a significant setback for the organization and fantasy owners alike. In addition, the winger has racked up 31 PIM and 112 shots on goal. The biggest knock on the 24-year-old's fantasy value is his lack of power-play points -- just two on the year -- despite averaging 2:29 of ice time per night with the man advantage. Look for Sven Andrighetto to attempt to pick up the slack while Gallagher is sidelined. The Edmonton native has already been placed on injured reserve, per the NHL's official media site.

Canadiens' Brendan Gallagher: Won't play Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallagher (hand) won't travel to Toronto for Saturday's game against the Maple Leafs, and will instead return to Montreal to meet with team doctors.

Gallagher will miss at least one game with the hand injury he sustained during Wednesday's matchup with Dallas, and could be in line for a long-term absence depending on what the Canadiens' team doctors determine during their evaluation. Gallagher was forced to miss 17 games after breaking two fingers last season, so his fantasy owners will hope the Canadian forward was able to escape Wednesday's contest fracture free.

Canadiens' Brendan Gallagher: Exits Wednesday's contest with hand injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallagher (hand) won't return to Wednesday's game against the Stars, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.

Gallagher sustained the injury when he was hit on the hand by a slap shot from teammate Shea Weber in the third period of Wednesday's tilt. The 24-year-old winger reportedly may have deflected Weber's shot with the same hand he broke two fingers on last season, an injury which ultimately cost him 17 games in 2015-16. It appears as though Gallagher may be in line for an extended absence, but the Canadiens should release an official update on his status ahead of Saturday's matchup with Toronto.

Canadiens' Brendan Gallagher: Snaps goal drought Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Gallagher had four shots and scored the game-tying goal in Montreal's 3-2 overtime win against Florida on Thursday.

The goal was Gallagher's first since Nov. 26 and snapped a 13-game drought. With just six goals over 36 games, Gallagher is well off the pace projected for him, but perhaps a recent move to the top line will awaken the goal-scorer lurking within. The Canadiens' other goals Thursday came off the stick of Gallagher's linemates -- Max Pacioretty scored the first on a power play and Philip Danault finished it with his overtime winner.

Canadiens' Brendan Gallagher: Heading to top line
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Gallagher is moving to a line with Max Pacioretty and Philip Danault when the Canadiens face the Lightning on Wednesday, Pat Hickey of the Montreal Gazette reports.

Montreal coach Michel Therrien is looking to jump-start a couple of forwards. Gallagher, pointless in his last six and no goals since Nov. 26, replaces Alexander Radulov, who is also pointless in the last six games. Gallagher has played some with Pacioretty in the past, including toward the end of the 2-1 loss to Columbus, Montreal's final game prior to the holiday break. With just 17 points (five goals) through 34 games, Gallagher is well off his scoring pace from last season.
