AFTER AN EXCELLENT SEASON IN THE AHL, HABS PROSPECT SUFFERS MAJOR INJURY

MAY 6, 2021  (11H07)      COOPER GODIN
The Montreal Canadiens announced on Thursday that 2017 first round pick Ryan Poehling would miss the remainder of the AHL season after suffering a wrist injury that will require surgery. He was held out of Tuesday's game against the Toronto Marlies with an upper-body injury, and the extent of the injury was not known until Thursday morning.

Poehling, 22, was lighting it up this season with the Canadiens AHL affiliate, the Laval Rocket. In 28 games he was nearly a point-per-game player, tallying 25 points (11 G, 14 A) along with 2 penalty minutes, and was a +5.

This is a big blow not only for Laval, who won the Frank S. Mathers trophy as champions of the Canadian division, but this is bad news for Montreal. The Canadiens would have likely called Poehling up at the start of the Stanley Cup playoffs, not only just to sit in the press box, but to add a bit of a scoring punch to their bottom-six.

The Lakeville, Minnesota native is in the final year of his entry-level contract and with be an RFA on July 28th. Given how he performed this season in Laval, Poehling likely has an inside shot at making the Canadiens roster out of training camp next season.
