MONTREAL - On Thursday night, the Canadiens announced that forward Joel Armia suffered a right knee injury during the game against the New York Rangers on November 6.
His recovery period is expected to be six to eight weeks.
In 15 games with the Habs this season, the 25-year-old Finn had amassed three goals and seven points.
Armia was a first-round pick of the Buffalo Sabres - 16th overall - back in 2011.
He was acquired by the Canadiens in a trade with the Winnipeg Jets on June 30, and later signed a one-year contract.
