Surgery sidelines Canadiens' Drewiske 5-6 months
Montreal Canadiens defenseman Davis Drewiske will be out 5-6 weeks following shoulder surgery.

The Montreal Canadiens announced Wednesday that defenseman Davis Drewiske underwent shoulder surgery Wednesday morning in Montreal.

Recovery time is expected to take 5-6 months.

Quote of the Day

[He's] real confident with the puck now, getting it off his stick quick and no second-guessing. We need that. He's such a good guy in the room. He works so hard. That's the big thing. For not a big man, he just fights for every puck and when he scores, the guys appreciate that even more.
