Bad News: Another Long-Term Injury Has Just Been Confirmed

Published January 8, 2024 at 3:01 PM

In the last few hours, two injuries have been announced within the Montreal Canadiens organization, including one involving a very promising prospect. Indeed, the Laval Rocket confirmed that forwards Sean Farrell and Gabriel Bourque had to leave yesterday afternoon's game due to injuries, unable to return to the game.

"Gabriel Bourque and Sean Farrell (injuries) will not return to the game this afternoon." - Laval Rocket

This is sad news for the Tricolore's prospect, Sean Farrell, who was experiencing very good moments lately. The former Harvard University forward is notably ranked fifth among the team's top scorers with an impressive tally of six goals and eleven assists (17 points) in 24 games, in the AHL.

Moreover, according to information reported by Anthony Marcotte, the fourth-round pick in 2020 could be sidelined for a long period. The forward unfortunately took a hard fall against the boards during the first period against the Utica Comets, spending several seconds on the ice before heading back to the locker room.

"Sean Farrell was hurt early in yesterday's game and everything indicates that he will be out for a little while. It's a shame because his involvement since his return to play goes well beyond the score sheet. I really like the way he behaves on both sides of the ice. If Farrell wants to establish himself in the NHL, he will have to be more complete than a strictly offensive player. I think he's aware of that." - Anthony Marcotte

We strongly hope that his rehabilitation goes as planned and that he can quickly rejoin Jean-François Houle's lineup to help the CH's farm team qualify for the playoffs.
