  • Canadiens' Brendan Gallagher: Set to miss at least six weeks

    Gallagher (lower body) is expected to be shelved for at least six weeks, the team announced Wednesday.

    Gallagher has already been placed on injured reserve but now could be a candidate for long-term IR given his extended recovery timeline. With Gallagher on the shelf, both Evgenii Dadonov and Mike Hoffman shouldn't have to worry about being healthy scratches anymore. For his part, Gallagher has managed just nine points in 25 games this season and could be in danger of missing the 20-point threshold for the first time in his career.

  • Canadiens' Brendan Gallagher: Moved to IR

  • Canadiens' Brendan Gallagher: Out two weeks

    Gallagher (lower body) will miss the next two weeks, Eric Engels of Sportsnet.ca reports.

    Gallagher missed Thursday's game against the Rangers after missing practice earlier in the day. He has four goals and nine points in 25 games. His offensive production has fallen since logging back-to-back 30-plus goal seasons four and five seasons ago.

  • Canadiens' Brendan Gallagher: Will not play Thursday

    Gallagher (lower body) will not play against the Rangers on Thursday, Eric Engels of Sportsnet.ca reports.

    Gallagher was not at practice Thursday. The winger has scored his fourth of the season Tuesday and has only nine points in 25 games this season. Consider him day-to-day.

  • Canadiens' Brendan Gallagher: Scores late in loss

    Gallagher scored a goal on his lone shot, blocked on shot and picked up two penalty minutes over 15:00 of ice time in Tuesday's 6-3 loss to Nashville.

    Gallagher finished up the scoring with five minutes left in the lopsided loss. It was his first goal in three games since returning from a lower-body injury that cost him 13 contests. With just four goals as the season approaches the halfway point, Gallagher is in danger of finishing with fewer than 10 goals for a second straight year.

  • Canadiens' Brendan Gallagher: No points but big PIM in loss

    Gallagher (lower body) returned Thursday and had three shots and 17 penalty minutes in 13:41 in a 7-2 loss to Florida.

    He had missed 13 games with the injury. Gallagher got more and more frustrated as the game progressed and finally snapped late in the third, taking on Brandon Montour in a fight. Get him back into your lineup if you've held onto him this long. Gallagher can obviously help you pad some of the more abrasive categories.

  • Canadiens' Brendan Gallagher: Playing Thursday

    Gallagher (lower body) will be activated off injured reserve and return to the lineup Thursday versus Florida.

    Gallagher missed 13 games with the injury and will see third-line time alongside Evgenii Dadonov and Christian Dvorak. Gallagher has three goals and five assists in 22 games this season. He has had a pair of 30-plus goal seasons, but that was five and six years ago respectively and has been injury prone ever since.

  • Canadiens' Brendan Gallagher: Remains sidelined

    Gallagher (lower body) won't play Wednesday versus the Lightning, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.

    Gallagher will miss a 13th straight game Wednesday, and at this point there's no telling when he might be ready to return from his lower-body injury. The 30-year-old winger has only collected eight points through 22 contests this campaign, so he should be on the waiver wire in all but the deepest of fantasy formats.

    Gallagher (lower body) skated before practice Saturday, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.

  • Canadiens' Brendan Gallagher: Out of action Thursday

    Gallagher (lower body) will not be in the lineup Thursday against Calgary, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.

  • Canadiens' Brendan Gallagher: Grinds out an assist

    Gallagher had an assist, three shots on net, one hit and a plus-3 rating over 16:02 of ice time in Saturday's 5-4 shootout win over Philadelphia.

    After Arber Xhekaj's shot was stopped by Carter Hart, Gallagher battled in front of the net to keep the puck alive for Christian Dvorak, who batted it home for Montreal's first goal. To that point, the Flyers had scored a pair of early goals to take a 2-0 lead. After bouncing around the middle six this season, Gallagher appears to have found chemistry on the second line with Dvorak. Gallagher has eight points over 18 contests, with five of those coming in the last six.

  • Canadiens' Brendan Gallagher: Gets two points vs. Columbus

    Gallagher scored a goal and registered an assist in Thursday's 6-4 loss to Columbus.

    Gallagher has three goals and seven points in 17 games this season. He had been held off the scoresheet in six of his previous seven contests going into Thursday's action. At his height in 2017-18 and 2018-19, he recorded 31 and 33 goals respectively, but he dropped to just seven goals in 56 contests last season. Part of that is because he's been shooting far less. He had 3.83 shots per game in 2019-20 and just 2.54 in 2021-22. He's averaging 2.47 shots this season, so he shouldn't be expected to score a lot of goals.

  • Canadiens' Brendan Gallagher: Takes maintenance day

    Gallagher took a maintenance day Friday, but head coach Martin St. Louis believes the forward will be ready to face the Penguins on Saturday, Pat Hickey of the Montreal Gazette reports.

    Gallagher was involved in a skirmish during Wednesday's win over the Canucks, outmanned and outmatched with defenseman Oliver Ekman-Larsson and goalie Thatcher Demko. More about his availability should be learned closer to the 7:00 pm EST puck drop in Montreal.

  • Canadiens' Brendan Gallagher: Aides Canadiens in victory

    Gallagher registered two assists in Tuesday's 3-2 shootout win against Detroit.

    Gallagher had just two goals and three points in 12 games before Tuesday's contest. He averaged 14:20 of ice time in those 12 games and only logged 11:12 in Tuesday's victory. At his height in 2017-18, Gallagher had 33 goals and 52 points in 82 games, but his offensive production has declined significantly since then, and his limited role makes a serious comeback doubtful.

  • Canadiens' Brendan Gallagher: Scores in victory

    Gallagher scored his second goal of the season in Thursday's 3-2 victory over Buffalo.

    Gallagher now has two goals in eight games this season and is pointless in six others. He gave the Canadiens a 1-0 lead at 13:31 of the first period when his shot from the right circle hit Eric Comrie's pad and ricocheted off Owen Power's skate and into the net. Gallagher's second came at 16:41 of the third when he deflected Josh Anderson's one-timer past Comrie.

    Gallagher was injured during the second period of Saturday's 5-2 loss to the Stars but returned for the third period. He finished with three shots on net, one blocked shot and two PIM over 11:36 of ice time.

    Gallagher tripped on a loose stick and slid into the boards before being helped off the ice. The injury looked bad, and there could be some lingering effects in the days to come. The Canadiens are off until Tuesday, when they host the Wild.
