Galchenyuk (knee) will not play on Tuesday.

Galchenyuk previously missed 18 games with a knee injury and has reportedly re-aggravated it and will not play on Tuesday. The injury is believed to have occurred on Saturday vs. the Sabres and the Canadiens are calling it a “minor injury” to the same knee. Head coach Michel Therrien added that Galchenyuk did not come back too soon and is day-to-day.

Galchenyuk is out indefinitely with a lower-body injury.

Galchenyuk was hurt during Sunday’s shootout win in Los Angeles, but traveled to St. Louis with the team. After undergoing some testing in St. Louis, Galchenyuk will return to Montreal to undergo further testing. Expect a more definitive timetable to be revealed later this week. In the meantime, Andrew Shaw will likely shift to centre for Tuesday’s game.

Galchenyuk came into Tuesday as questionable, but he will be in the lineup tonight vs. the Stars. Galchenyuk comes in on a hot streak, picking up seven goals in his last six games. Look for Galchenyuk to centre the top line with Max Pacioretty and Sven Andrighetto on his wings.

He has totalled 31 points (13G / 18A) in 65 games this season.

Galchenyuk (hand) has not been cleared to play on Wednesday, but all signs point towards him returning.

Galchenyuk last played on January 6, he has missed the last 15 games with a broken right hand. At Canadiens practice this afternoon he skated on the third line with Lars Eller and Rene Bourque. Monitor his status following the Habs morning skate on Wednesday, but it appears as if he will be in the lineup vs. the Red Wings.
