Rene Bourque will sit out Tuesday’s Montreal Canadiens game against the Minnesota Wild with a lower-body injury, the Montreal Gazette’s Dave Stubbs reports.

The 31-year-old hasn’t really delivered on the potential the Habs were hoping to see when they grabbed him from the Calgary Flames back in 2011-12.┬áHe was a three-time 20+ goal scorer with Calgary, but has peaked at 13 points with Montreal so far (during 27 games last season).

Injuries have been a big issue, with concussion problems looming largest.

Perhaps that injury has been slowing him down, as he hasn’t scored in his last five games and only collected a goal in his last eight.

Either way, the team will be without him against Minnesota tonight.
