It's a big loss for the Canadiens as he's not only one of their best players, but was also their leading scorer in 2011-12 with 65 points during a breakout season that saw him score a career-high 33 goals.
The Canadiens signed him to a six-year, $27-million contract extension last summer.
He didn't score a goal in his first three games in 2013 but had four assists.
