MONTREAL - The Montreal Canadiens announced that forward Jesperi Kotkaniemi underwent arthroscopic surgery on Tuesday on his left knee. The procedure was performed by Dr. Thierry Pauyo in Montreal.
''With regards to Jesperi, it was a chronic, minor injury that did not stop him from playing this past season. Jesperi will remain in Montreal for the coming weeks to complete his rehabilitation program with our team's medical staff. We have been told by our medical group that there should be no delay in starting his offseason training," said Canadiens general manager, Marc Bergevin.
