Habs' Josh Gorges out rest of season
MONTREAL -- Canadiens defenseman Josh Gorges will miss the rest of the season with a right knee injury.
It's another blow for Montreal, which already lost star defenseman Andrei Markov for the year with a knee injury.
General manager Pierre Gauthier announced Thursday that Gorges will undergo surgery. The 26-year-old Gorges had one goal and six assists in 36 games this season.
Gauthier says Gorges was disappointed with the news and had hoped to come back this season.
