The Montreal Canadiens have made a somewhat concerning announcement about a key player on their roster.

Following their victory against the Kraken, the organization confirmed that defenseman Mike Matheson will not be participating in today's practice in order to receive treatment from the team's medical staff.

"Defenseman Mike Matheson will not participate in today's training (treatment day)." - Montreal Canadiens

It is sincerely hoped that this is not a serious injury!


Remember, some observers had mentioned that the assistant captain might have been dealing with discomfort for a few weeks.

Certainly, the 29-year-old defenseman is a cornerstone of the defensive squad, and his absence would be a significant blow for Martin St-Louis and his team. In 25 games this season, Mike Matheson has accumulated an impressive total of five goals and thirteen assists (18 points).

More details will follow.
