In a tweet, the Club made it known that 20-year-old Ryan Poehling has been diagnosed with a concussion and would be out indefinitely.

The Habs also announced that 24-year-old Michael McCarron had suffered a groin injury that'll keep him on the shelf for approximately six weeks.

Poehling, the Canadiens' first-round pick (25th overall) in 2017, scored a hat trick and the shootout winner in his NHL debut in April. The Lakeville, MN native played his first preseason contest on Wednesday in Bathurst, NB, earning an assist on Alex Belzile's shorthanded game-winner against the Florida Panthers in the Kraft Hockeyville game.

McCarron was Montreal's first-round pick (25th overall) in 2013. He has suited up for 69 games at the NHL level, recording two goals for eight points. The Grosse Pointe, MI native also has 38 goals and 102 points in 176 AHL games with the St. John's IceCaps and Laval Rocket.
