After missing 18 games with a knee injury, Alex Galchenyuk will return to Montreal's lineup on Saturday night.

Galchenyuk practiced on a line with Alex Radulov and Max Pacioretty during the morning skate. He was also on the point on the Canadiens' top power play unit (Shea Weber was the other player on the point). Galchenyuk was in the top 10 in scoring before he went down, so this is a huge boost for the Canadiens. He has nine goals and 23 points in 25 games this season.

The Montreal Canadiens are terming Alex Galchenyuk (leg) as "out indefinitely."

Galchenyuk sustained the injury during the third period of Sunday's contest. The fact that Montreal is labeling him as out indefinitely is obviously very discouraging as while that timetable is vague, it tends to be used in relation to long-term injuries. That being said, Montreal plans to have an update on Galchenyuk later this week after he undergoes further testing.

Galchenyuk left Sunday's contest in the third period and should be regarded as day-to-day for now. If this turns out to be a more significant injury, it would be a huge blow for Montreal given that he has nine goals and 23 points in 25 games this season.
