Brandon Prust has been a surprisingly key player for Montreal this season, but now the Habs will have to find out what they can do without him for a short time.

The team announced Prust has a first-degree shoulder separation and will miss 10-14 days to recover from it. He suffered the injury last night in Montreal’s comeback victory over Tampa Bay. Rugged forward Ryan White will reenter the lineup to take his place.

Prust has been a boon for Montreal contributing toughness (81 penalty minutes) and penalty killing while also adding some offense with four goals and five assists. His work on a line with Alex Galchenyuk and Brendan Gallagher has helped both of those rookies get off to flying starts.

    tbh, at first I was thinking he was just trying to draw a penalty.

    Separated shoulder epidemic? Not getting the attention it deserves compared to concussions but the injury is very serious and there have been plenty of these around the league.

    Miss this guy in NY, he certainly added grit and never gave up on a play.
