Canadiens' Max Pacioretty helped off ice

Forward Max Pacioretty was helped off the ice in the first period of the Montreal Canadiens' game against the Winnipeg Jets at MTS Centre on Tuesday with an apparent lower-body injury.

The Canadiens said Pacioretty will not return. The team said the left wing sustained a lower-body injury.

Pacioretty was pulled down by Jets forward James Wright while heading to the net. He was clutching his left leg as the Canadiens' medical staff came on to tend to him 13:02 into the game.

Pacioretty was not putting any weight on his left leg as he was helped from the ice.

Pacioretty, who missed a game earlier this season with an upper-body injury, has two goals and an assist in five games this season.

Quote of the Day

There's no discouragement in that room. There's no issues there at all to be honest with you. It's more about, 'Hey, it's opportunities for players.' And if we become that bad of a team because of one player, it's not a real good sign for our hockey club. So this is part of sports. It's part of hockey.
