Canadiens head coach Dominique Ducharme said Saturday that Hoffman could be sidelined for up to four weeks with a lower-body injury, according to Sportsnet's Eric Engels.

Ducharme said Thursday that Hoffman was hurt before coming to Montreal. The 31-year-old signed a three-year, $13.5 million deal with the Canadiens in July.

A player on IR is eligible to return after missing a minimum of three games, but that clearly won't be an option for Mostert this time around.

If Hoffman is out four weeks, he'll miss Montreal's first five regular-season games. The Canadiens play their sixth game of the season on Oct. 23 against the Detroit Red Wings.

Hoffman spent the 2020-21 season with the St. Louis Blues, tallying 17 goals and 19 assists in 52 games. Before that, he spent two seasons with the Florida Panthers after spending his first seven years in the NHL with the Ottawa Senators.

The 31-year-old has tallied 395 points (189 goals, 206 assists) in 545 career regular-season games. He has scored more than 20 goals six times in his career.

Montreal is also being cautious with goaltender Carey Price, who is recovering from July knee surgery. Ducharme said he isn't sure if Price will start the regular season, per The Athletic.

49ers' Dre Greenlaw needs groin surgery, out until at least November

  49ers' Dre Greenlaw needs groin surgery, out until at least November San Francisco linebacker Dre Greenlaw requires surgery to repair the groin injury he suffered in Detroit, and he will be out through at least some point into November. Greenlaw may have gotten injured while returning an interception for a touchdown against the Lions. Along with the pick-six, he tallied six total tackles in the victory.

"We'd like to have him for the first game for sure, but do we want to start the season with these two players and have these injuries linger for a long time?" Ducharme said. "Sometimes it's worth it to miss one, two or three games so that when they do play, they are at 100 percent and the injury is behind them.

That's how we will manage the situation with those two guys and hopefully we don't have any other situations like this."

Joe Judge: Giants OL Nick Gates' leg injury 'could be career-ending'

  Joe Judge: Giants OL Nick Gates' leg injury 'could be career-ending' Gates went to the hospital near the Washington Football Team's stadium after fracturing his leg in last Thursday's game and has not yet been released after undergoing surgery last Friday. Giants head coach Joe Judge said Gates needs another procedure to address the fracture, adding he'd "be lying if I said no" when asked if Gates' career may be over as a result of the injury. However, the franchise is optimistic Gates will return next season. More Joe Judge on Nick Gates: “We’re confident he’ll be able to come back, but yes, it could be career-ending.

Patriots place OT Trent Brown on injured reserve .
Since his first stint with the Patriots ended, Brown has been unable to stay healthy. He did make the 2019 Pro Bowl, becoming the rare right tackle invitee that year, but played in just 11 games. Last year, a calf injury in Week 1 sidelined him before multiple stints on the Raiders’ reserve/COVID-19 list wrecked his season.The Patriots reacquired Brown for a Day 3 pick but have not been able to deploy him much. As part of a redone contract, Brown is signed only through the end of this season.
