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

It was a big dream. [Messi] is probably the best athlete out there, so it's a big honor, for [Kuznetzov] as well. It's maybe a once in a lifetime opportunity to meet the best player in soccer right now. I'm a big Barcelona fan and Messi fan, so it's huge. You can take [Michael] Jordan, [Mark] Messier, [Wayne] Gretzky, those kinds of [people]. It's an honor to meet. It's nice to be in that position.
