MONTREAL – The Canadiens will be without the services of All-Star defenseman Andrei Markov for the next four months.
The veteran blue-liner left the Habs’ first game of the season late in the contest against the Maple Leafs at the Air Canada Centre.
He underwent surgery on Thursday night in Toronto to repair a lacerated tendon in his ankle. He was released from hospital this morning and will return to Montreal today.
In 2008-09, Markov enjoyed a career-year, posting 64 points before missing the last four games of the season plus the playoffs with a knee injury.
Rick is the Editor-in-Chief, lead contributor, and owner of the All Habs network of websites. His mission is to build a community of Canadiens fans who are informed, engaged and connected. He is the vision behind all four sites within the network - All Habs, Habs Tweetup, We Are Canadiens, and The Montreal Forum - and is responsible for the design and layout of each.
In concert with the strong belief that "Habs fans are everywhere!", Rick is pleased that people use All Habs as a conduit to find and connect with other Habs fans worldwide. He is also proud that Habs Tweetups have allowed fans to meet in person and develop long lasting friendships.
