Montreal defenceman Josh Gorges out four weeks with broken hand

MONTREAL - Montreal Canadiens defenceman Josh Gorges will be out an estimated four weeks after undergoing surgery to repair a fracture in his left hand.

Gorges is believed to have suffered the injury while blocking a shot with a hand during Montreal's win over the Toronto Maple Leafs on March 1.

He was sent back to Montreal before the Canadiens' game against Phoenix last Tuesday.

Gorges has one goal, 12 assists and a plus-7 rating in 63 games this season.

Quote of the Day

He stuck his neck out there for us. I don't know what's wrong with him, but you see he was in pain. But he went back in there. He's a tough guy. You've got to give him credit for helping the boys out.
