DOMINIQUE DUCHARME SHARES ENCOURAGING NEWS REGARDING BRENDAN GALLAGHER

APR 17, 2021  (15H01)      COOPER GODIN
In his pre-game media briefing, Montreal Canadiens head coach Dominique Ducharme announced that forward Brendan Gallagher will not require surgery for his fractured right thumb.

"He's doing good - obviously he needs time - but no surgery so that's positive," Ducharme said.

On April 5th in a game against the Edmonton Oilers, Gallagher blocked a shot from rookie defenceman Alexander Romanov with his right hand. Gallagher left the game and did not return. Following the game, Dominique Ducharme revealed the diagnosis, and said that Gallagher would be out six weeks. He is expected to return for the start of the 2021 Stanley Cup playoffs.

The Canadiens then placed Gallagher on LTIR and freed up roughly $3.75 million in cap space which they used to acquire defencemen Jon Merrill from Detroit, and Erik Gustafsson from Philadelphia.

In 35 games this season, Gallagher has 23 points (14 G, 9 A), 16 penalty minutes, and is a +10.
