MONTREAL (AP) -The Montreal Canadiens placed defenseman Craig Rivet on the injured list Saturday because of pneumonia.

Rivet will be able to return to the lineup on Wednesday, when the Canadiens play the Devils in New Jersey, but he is likely to be out longer. He missed his second game on Saturday night when the Canadiens hosted the Ottawa Senators.

The move is retroactive to Tuesday.

Montreal did get forward Steve Begin back on Saturday when he was activated from the injured list after missing 27 games due to back spasms.
