MONTREAL - Noah Juulsen is expected to miss the next six weeks of action after fracturing his foot in Monday's game against the Bruins in Quebec City.
The 20-year-old blue-liner was injured in the team's first preseason tilt of the year and was forced to leave the game early.
This season marks Juulsen's first in the pro ranks. In his final year of Junior in 2016-17, he racked up 12 goals and 34 points in 49 games, in addition to posting a plus-15 differential. He also helped Team Canada earn a silver medal at the World Junior Hockey Championships last January at the Bell Centre.
