The Canadiens announced Tuesday that forward Aaron Palushaj has been recalled from the AHL’s Hamilton Bulldog, only two days after he was returned to the farm.
Palushaj will be in the lineup on Wednesday night against the Philadelphia Flyers.
The call-up became necessary after the injury to forward Max Pacioretty on Monday night.
Several reports on Tuesday indicate that there is no fracture to Pacioretty’s wrist. But the forward has suffered partially torn ligaments and there is no immediate timetable for his return. There is, however, no need for surgery, which is good news.
