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

That was something I've been dreaming of, something I've told myself before the third period I was going to do ... It was an amazing feeling. It's hard to describe. I didn't believe it went in at first but when I saw all the reaction and all the fans going crazy and my teammates going crazy, it's just an unbelievable feeling. I didn't know what to do. I didn't know whether to jump or just skate and do a Theo Fleury. I don't think I'm the same caliber player he is so I couldn't do it.
