Tom Gilbert has undergone surgery on his left knee.

Gilbert was already ruled out for the rest of the season, but we now know that he's more precisely expected to miss six months. The fact that Gilbert will likely be recovering from this injury until late August is potentially a big problem for him because he will be an unrestricted free agent this summer. He might not find that there's not much of a market for him at the start of the free agent frenzy due to his injury and by the time he's healthy, most teams might only be interested in short-term or discount deals.

Tom Gilbert (knee) is listed on injured reserve.

Tom Gilbert will miss the rest of the season following surgery on his left knee.

He appeared to suffer a foot injury when he blocked a shot in Friday's shootout win over Philadelphia, but that isn't what the team announced after Monday's shootout loss to Nashville. Gilbert may have been trade bait for the Canadiens, but now he is off the board and could test unrestricted free agency in the summer.
Feb 23 - 10:13 AM

Tom Gilbert (lower body) will not play Monday against Nashville.

He will be re-evaluated Monday night and Tuesday, but for now he is listed as day-to-day.
Feb 22 - 11:47 AM

Tom Gilbert left Friday night's 3-2 win over Philadelphia in the second period with a foot injury.

Feb 20 - 10:25 AM

Tom Gilbert scored a goal in Saturday's 5-1 win over the Edmonton Oilers.

This was Gilbert's first goal of the year and his first point since returning from a lower-body injury three games ago. The 33-year-old has two points, a plus-5 rating and 12 penalty minutes in 39 games this season. Gilbert, who's a pending UFA, could be sneaky good pick up for a contending team.
Feb 7 - 10:07 AM

Tom Gilbert will get back into the lineup on Tuesday at Philadelphia.

He has missed 14 games because of a lower-body injury, but he may have been healthy enough to play in the last two contests. "We believe Tom is ready to play," coach Michel Therrien said. "Been a long injury. He's more than ready. He's working hard. We hope that his experience is going to help our defensive squad."
Feb 2 - 3:35 PM

Tom Gilbert and Greg Pateryn will be scratched for Tuesday's rematch with Columbus.

Through 36 games this season Gilbert has produced just one point with 10 PIMs, 23 hits, and 61 blocks. Just not a lot of fantasy value there.
Jan 26 - 7:09 PM

Tom Gilbert isn't listed on Montreal's injured reserve list anymore, but his status for Monday night isn't clear.

He skated with Greg Pateryn alongside Andrei Markov during the morning skate because P.K. Subban was out with an illness. If Subban is able to play then Pateryn and Gilbert could be scratched.
Jan 25 - 5:39 PM

Jan 22 - 12:44 PM

Tom Gilbert (lower body) might be ready to resume practicing with his teammates next week.

Jan 14 - 8:05 AM

Tom Gilbert (lower body) will be re-evaluated in early January.

The Canadiens have placed defenseman Tom Gilbert on injured reserve.

He obviously didn't make much progress in his recovery from a lower-body injury he sustained on Tuesday over the Christmas break. If you have Gilbert on your fantasy squad reserve him immediately.

Tom Gilbert left Tuesday's match with Minnesota due to a lower body injury after playing just 3:41.

Through 35 games thus far the veteran defender has one point, 10 PIMs, 23 hits, and 61 blocks. Unfortunately he no longer boasts much fantasy value. We'll keep you posted on the status of his injury.
