Josh Gorges Fractured Hand, Unsure When He Will Return


Josh Gorges has been sent back to Montreal for evaluation on his hand injury, the Canadiens announced on Thursday.

It’s unclear when the injury occurred — some suggest it was last week against Pittsburgh — but the veteran defenseman underwent an MRI following Wednesday’s 4-3 shootout win over Anaheim, at which time the fracture was revealed.

Right now, it’s unclear how much time Gorges will miss, though he’ll definitely skip tonight’s game in Phoenix and Saturday’s affair in San Jose.
