Emelin out for the year

  • Tough news for the Habs today as Doctors have determined that Alexei Emelin will need surgery to repair the damage that was done to his knee as Emelin fell after a body check on Milan Lucic. The loss of Emelin is a large one for Montreal who loose a valuable stay at home guy, and physical presence. Beaulieu will replace him in the short term but the timing of the injury immediately following the trade deadline means that Marc Bergevin will need to replace the big Russian with young players from Hamilton.
