Montreal Defenceman Davis Drewiske has undergone shoulder surgery. The injury originally occurred during training camp this season. His initial window of rehabilitation was around a month's time.
After surgery his expected recovery time is 5-6 months.
He has yet to play a game this season but his loss drains the Habs pool of NHL experienced defencemen. With Douglas Murray yet to play and Alexei Emelin still sidelined this means that Tinordi and Beaulieu will continue to be with the team for some time.
The Canadiens have done well in their absence but will need for the young duo to continue playing at an NHL level in order to maintain their recent success.
