Gallagher (hand) has been medically cleared to play in the Winter Classic.

Gallagher has been sidelined since November 22nd after breaking two fingers while blocking a shot. Gallagher had 19 points (9G / 10A) in 22 games before getting hurt, so his return to the lineup is huge for the Canadiens’ offence. Gallagher will skate on the top line with Tomas Plekanec and Max Pacioretty.

Gallagher (hand) will miss at least six weeks.

Gallagher underwent surgery to repair two broken fingers and will miss at least six weeks. This is a huge loss for the Canadiens—Gallagher has 19 points (9G / 10A) in 22 games this season. Originally he is expected to be replace by Devante Smith-Pelly on the top line and by Alex Galchenyuk on the top power-play. The earliest he is expected to be back is the first or second week of January.

#Habs Brendan Gallagher (concussion) skated today but is yet to be cleared for contact by the team doctors; he will not play tonight vs. NYI

Once Gallagher gets cleared for contact it won't be long before he is back in the Canadiens lineup. The Habs are first in the East right now and will only get better with the return on Gallagher who has 8 points and is a +7 in 13 games this season.

The Vancouver Giants' Brendan Gallagher is still at the Montreal Canadiens training camp at this writing, even as his peers who have actually signed contracts and were also taken much earlier than 147th overall in the 2010 entry draft have trekked back to their junior clubs.

Gallagher could make the team out of camp as he continues his extended look. The diminutive right wing scored 44 goals and 91 points last season with the Vancouver Giants. If he stays with the big club it would likely be on the third or fourth line, which makes you think he would be better served in the WHL.
