Danault (concussion) will miss the remainder of the regular season but is expected to return for the start of the playoffs, per coach Dominique Ducharme, Eric Engels of Sportsnet.ca reports. Danault is expected to be joined by Carey Price (concussion), Shea Weber (upper body) and Brendan Gallagher (thumb) for the start of the postseason, as the Canadiens are getting healthy at just the right time. The defensive-minded center's set to hit unrestricted free agency on the heels of a pedestrian regular season, which he'll finish with five goals and 19 assists in 53 games.
Danault didn't travel with the team to Toronto on Saturday and is instead back in Montreal recovering from a concussion, per coach Dominique Ducharme. Danault's upper-body injury has been clarified as a concussion. The Canadiens come back home Monday to face the Oilers, but it remains to be seen whether Danault will be able to rejoin his teammates at that point. There's no set timetable for his return.
Danault (upper body) returned to Montreal and will not be available for Saturday's game against Toronto, Arpon Basu of The Athletic reports. Danault sustained an injury against the Maple Leafs on Thursday and will miss at least one game as a result. The Canadiens are back at home Monday against Edmonton and the 28-year-old will be considered questionable for that contest. He has 24 points in 53 games this season.
Danault left Thursday's game versus the Maple Leafs with an upper-body injury, John Lu of TSN.ca reports. Danault apparently came into Thursday's game banged up, and he wasn't able to continue after exiting in the first period. It's not expected to be a long-term issue for the center, but his status for Saturday's rematch with the Maple Leafs is in doubt.
Danault (undisclosed) won't return to Thursday's game versus the Maple Leafs. Danault was injured in the first period, though the details around his injury are scarce. With the Maple Leafs ahead of the Canadiens 4-0 after one period, this may be a precaution to keep Danault out of action in what's already likely a lost game.
