Habs lose Chris Campoli to hamstring injury

The Montreal Canadiens have lost rearguard Chris Campoli to a hamstring injury that he suffered during yesterday's contest against the Maple Leafs.


Campoli left the game in the second period following an awkward movement in front of Carey Price's net. Yannick Weber, who dressed as a forward, took his spot on the blueline to finish the game, which the Habs lost 2-0.

The newly acquired rearguard left the arena on crutches and he is expected to miss up to three weeks because of the injury. Look for Alexei Emelin to draw back into the line-up and the Canadiens to call-up a forward as Weber will move back to the blueline. More tests will be done today to assess the extent of the injury.

Woywitka lost on waivers, Betts and Campoli already injured. I hope it does not turn out to be that kind of year.

@Louis not to mention Markov on the sidelines...

PG must be pulling his hair out already! I'm sure with all his depth d pick ups this offseaseon he thought he'd be good to cover injuries...

Not so fast, it seems...
