MONTREAL - The Montreal Canadiens announced Saturday night that goaltender Cristobal Huet will undergo surgery on Sunday, February 18 in Montreal to repair his left hamstring. He will be out indefinitely.
Huet left the Canadiens' game in New Jersey in the second period after pulling his left hamstring on Wednesday night. He fell awkwardly in his net after giving up a power-play goal and was assisted off the ice and to the locker-room with 6:49 left in the period.
Huet is 19-15-3 this season with a 2.74 goals-against average and .918 save percentage.
