Habs’ Pa­cioretty in­jures knee

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - SPORTS - THE CANA­DIAN PRESS

Mon­treal Cana­di­ens left­winger Max Pa­cioretty is in­jured and will miss most of the pre­sea­son the team an­nounced on Fri­day.

He is ex­pected to need 12 weeks of re­cov­ery, so he will likely miss all or most of train­ing camp and the NHL pre-sea­son.

The in­jury oc­curred on Thurs­day.

The team gave no other de­tails of the in­jury.

Pa­cioretty plays left wing on Mon­treal’s top line.

The 26-year-old led the team with 37 goals and a ca­reer-high 67 points last sea­son and added another five goals and two as­sists in 11 play­off games.
