Things didn’t look good for Canadiens winger Jonathan Drouin when he was run over by Alex Ovechkin in the second period Friday in Washington.

Drouin was slow getting to his feet and when he reached the bench, he proceeded immediately to the quiet room, where he went though the NHL’s concussion protocol.

A clear-headed Drouin returned to the ice in the third period, but he wound up on the injured-reserve list the next day with a wrist injury.

As the Canadiens prepared to fly to Columbus for Tuesday’s game with the Blue Jackets (7 p.m., TSN2, RDS, TSN 690 Radio), head coach Claude Julien announced that Drouin was undergoing surgery on his wrist. He also revealed Paul Byron came out of the Washington game with a knee injury and he will undergo surgery Tuesday.

“We won’t know how long they’ll be out until after the surgeries,” said Julien. “You find out things once you’re in there and we’re hoping for the best news possible.”

The fact that Drouin underwent surgery is already a concern. A simple break doesn’t require surgery and there’s a recovery period of four-to-six weeks. If there is a compound fracture or ligament damage, the recovery could take longer. His agent, Allan Walsh, tweeted Monday that Drouin will be out for eight weeks.

After a disastrous finish last season, Drouin was off to the best start of his career with 15 points in 19 games. He was engaged at both ends of the ice and appeared ready to take the next step in his career after a summer of hard work on and off the ice.

“It’s happened to other players in the past,” said Julien. “They get off to great start and get hurt. I can remember (Steven) Stamkos in Tampa who was supposed to be going to the Olympics in Sochi and he was off to a great start and broke his leg crashing into a post in Boston. We’re in a sport where injuries unfortunately happen and we’re just going to hope that it’s shorter rather than longer and he’s going to come back the way he left us. Time will tell.”

Julien has a ready-made replacement for Drouin on the top line. Tomas Tartar started the season with Phil Danault and Brendan Gallagher and collected a goal and three assists in Washington while Drouin was being checked out. He has two goals and five assists in a four-game points streak and leads the Canadiens with 20 points.

Canadiens place Drouin on IR with upper-body injury

  Canadiens place Drouin on IR with upper-body injury Canadiens place Drouin on IR with upper-body injuryDrouin was on the wrong end of a massive collision with Alex Ovechkin during the second period of Friday's game. He was visibly shaken up and temporarily left the contest, but he returned to play six shifts in the third period. The team said the injury occurred in the third frame.

Double Whammy is a 1987 novel by Carl Hiaasen. The protagonist, a private investigator, is hired to expose a celebrity bass fisherman as a cheat and is drawn into a frame-up for murder. The book introduced the character of "Skink" (Clinton Tyree)

Jordan Weal will get more ice time on the third line, while Charles Hudon has another chance to prove he can play in the NHL. He came up from Laval for Saturday’s game against New Jersey and was limited to less than eight minutes of ice time, primarily because there were nine penalties in the third period and Hudon wasn’t involved on the power play or as a penalty-killer.

“I just have to do my stuff,” said Hudon. “(Laval head coach Joël Bouchard) and me have been talking a lot and I’m doing what he’s asking of me. He wants me to have a good stick, forechecking a lot and finishing my checks. If I do that, the pucks come back to me and I have a good shot.”

This is the first of a back-to-back set with the Canadiens playing at home Wednesday against Ottawa. Carey Price will start in goal and Julien said he’ll wait to name a goaltender for the Ottawa game, but he’ll likely split the workload and give Keith Kinkaid another start at home. He took a similar approach last week and Kinkaid earned a point in an overtime loss at home to New Jersey Saturday after Price won Friday in Washington.

In the Habs' Room: Late-period goals still plague Montreal

  In the Habs' Room: Late-period goals still plague Montreal The Canadiens’ 4-3 overtime loss to the New Jersey Devils had goaltender Keith Kinkaid shaking his head. “It was a tough one and it stinks that I couldn’t get the two points,” said Kinkaid, who has a 1-1-2 record in his four starts as Carey Price’s backup. “We should have beat them. But that seems to be the way it happens. “The two games I thought I’ve played the best we’ve gotten one point and the game I didn’t feel the sharpest I get two points, but these things work out over the season. It’s still early and the most important thing is we’re getting points.” © Eric Bolte New Jersey Devils goalie Mackenzie Blackwood stops Canadiens’ Phillip Danault with the help of teammate P.K.

New York Rangers at Canadiens: Five things you should knowThe matchup: If you’re an optimist, the Canadiens have picked up four points in their last four games but, if you’re are realist, they have lost their last three games to teams that are below them in the standings. The Rangers fall onto that category, but they’ve shown signs of life lately and had a 6-3-1 record in their last 10 games heading into Friday night’s game in Ottawa.
