Canadiens forward Max Pacioretty out 3-to-4 weeks after emergency appendicectomy

MONTREAL - Montreal Canadiens forward Max Pacioretty underwent an emergency appendicectomy Saturday.

The 24-year-old will miss three-to-four weeks, according to a brief Canadiens statement.

Pacioretty has four assists and a team-high 10 shots on goal in three games this season.

The six-foot-two, 196 pound American was drafted 22nd overall by Montreal in 2007.

Pacioretty has 53 goals and 65 assists in 205 games with the Habs.

Quote of the Day

Not only is it a great idea, but if you don't [start using analytics] you're going to fall behind. You have to be on the cutting edge. It was [Arizona Coyotes assistant general manager] Darcy Regier who said, 'If you didn't invent it, you have to be the second- or third-best copier, because if you're fourth or fifth you've got no chance.'
