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 (fingers) returned to the ice on Monday.
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.
Gallagher is out indefinitely to surgically repair two fingers.
Gallagher broke two fingers while blocking a shot in Sunday’s win. He remained in Montreal to undergo surgery on the two fingers and is out indefinitely. There is no word who is expected to replace Gallagher on the Canadiens top line.

Gallagher (flu) will play tonight.
Gallagher missed last night's game because of the flu, but will play tonight vs. the Rangers. He has eight goals and 12 points in 19 games. Ryan White comes out of the lineup.
Gallagher (illness) will be a game-time decision again tonight.
Gallagher did not play on Friday because of the flu, but could be ready to go tonight. If he plays, Ryan White would come out of the lineup.
Brendan Gallagher will not play tonight.
Gallagher was a gametime decision due to illness so this should be a short-term thing.
Gallagher (flu) is questionable tonight.
Gallagher did no participate in the morning skate because of the flu. If he can't go expect George Parros to slide into the lineup and Rene Bourque or Max Pacioretty to move up alongside Lars Eller and Alex Galchenyuk. Consider Gallagher as a game-time decision.
#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.
#habs Brendan Gallagher has a concussion and won't play tomorrow.
This is a tough break for Gallagher who has had a great start to his NHL career. He has 5 G and 3 A with a +7 in his first 13 games. Concussion's are tricky so there is no timetable for his return.
Gallagher stays with the Habs as well.
Gallagher has a goal and an assist in 3 games with the Canadiens this season. He was informed today that he will be staying with the big club and not going back to juniors. He won't be fantasy relevant until he sees more ice time.

3-year deal for Gallagher with #Habs
Gallagher has followed up a strong preseason with 18 goals and 31 points through only 18 games with the Vancouver Giants. Look for him to get another long look before next season.
MONTRÉAL – The Montreal Canadiens announced Friday that forwards Michael Bournival (Shawinigan – QMJHL) and Brendan Gallagher (Vancouver – WHL) have been returned to their respective junior team. The Club also announced that forward Joonas Nattinen has been assigned to the AHL Hamilton Bulldogs.
No immediate fantasy hockey value in the WHL.
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.
