Habs place hurting Gorges on IR

The Canadiens today have placed defenceman Josh Gorges on their injured reserve list, presumably retroactive to include this week’s games in Washington and Tampa Bay, both of which he missed. Gorges is nursing a bad right knee.

Pat Hickey says from Florida that Gorges will likely be out a couple of weeks. The rearguard’s ironman streak of 150 consecutive games ended Tuesday when he was unable to go in Washington for the Canadiens’ 3-0 loss to the Capitals.

    Is he headed for surgery?

    Recovery time for an arthroscopic knee procedure is about two weeks!

    All the best to you as well Danno.

    Gorges on IR? I’m fine with that. He needs the rehab. Like most everyone else here, I saw him hurting. He plays way above his stature and I’m amazed how durable he is, alas, he is human.

  4. Danno says:

    Through thick and thin one thing is constant. We are Habs fans.

    Happy New Year to everyone who loves this crazy team in spite of it all. Best wishes for better things in 2011.


    “Hey Richard, two minutes for looking so good!”
