“Minor knee injury” knocks P.K. Subban out of World Championships

Last summer, the Montreal Canadiens took a leap of faith that Andrei Markov could recover from knee issues, signing him to a hefty contract extension that looks even riskier today. P.K. Subban is much younger, but it’s hard not to wonder about history repeating itself in a negative way after the Habs announced that the young blueliner (and impending restricted free agent) will not play in the 2012 World Hockey Championships because of a “minor knee injury.”

Here’s the full release from the Canadiens:

Montreal Canadiens assistant general manager Larry Carrière announced tonight that defenseman P.K. Subban will be returning to Montreal and will not participate in the World Hockey Championships. Subban suffered a minor knee injury that would have sidelined him for approximately two weeks.

He will be re-evaluated by the team doctors.

Perhaps it really is just a minor issue, but either way, the Canadiens face a lot of tough questions during this off-season. The most pressing problem comes at the top, where the Habs must make decisions about their next general manager and head coach.

It doesn’t stop there, however, as that new GM will need to sign young cornerstones Subban and Carey Price. Heavens forbid that we’ll look back at the triple-low-five with regrets.

      Shouldn’t you and your Bruin fan pals be busy sewing sheets together?

        Aw, c’mon, habsman. Lighten up, will ya? If you’re going to dish out steaming hot platters of poo every time there’s a Bruins story, you’ve got to expect a few jabs in return when there’s a story about the guy who is likely the most polarizing Canadiens player out there. And enough with the racist stuff. Not everyone in Boston, not even every Bruins fan if you can believe it, is a racist and you know it. Just because some Montreal fans riot after games doesn’t mean everyone living in Montreal is a hoodlum, right? (And yes, I know you don’t live in Montreal. Just making a point.)

    Did he hurt himself doing a pirouette while laughing at the other team? Or is he hurt at all?
