The Canadiens have sent Charles Hudon to St. John's (AHL).
Hudon appeared in three games with the Canadiens in mid-November before suffering an upper-body injury that forced him to miss the last five games. He returns to St. John’s where he has collected 14 points (9G / 5A) in 15 games.
Hudon (upper-body) will not play Saturday in Detroit.
Hudon was injured in a practice session on Friday and did not travel to Detroit with the team for Saturday’s game. Hudon has collected two assists in three games this season and is expected to be replaced by Daniel Carr in the lineup.
