The Oilers have acquired David Desharnais from the Canadiens for Brandon Davidson.
Desharnais has been regressing for the last few years, but has really struggled this season, registering just 10 points (4G / 6A) in 31 games with the Canadiens. The Oilers need some help in the face-off dot and Desharnais will bring that as a bottom-6 forward.
Desharnais is a potential trade piece for the Canadiens, so he will come out of the lineup so he doesn’t get hurt before Wednesday’s trade deadline. Desharnais has had a tough season, having recorded just 10 points (4G / 6A) in 31 games this season.
Desharnais (knee) returned to practice on Monday; expected to play on Tuesday.
Desharnais has missed the last 24 games with a knee injury that he suffered in the early part of December. Desharnais is expected to centre Andrew Shaw and Sven Andrighetto tomorrow and comes into play with nine points (3G / 6A) in 25 games this season.
Desharnais (knee) practiced on Wednesday; but won't play on Thursday.
Desharnais has been sidelined since December 6th, but was on the ice this morning and should be ready to go once the Canadiens return from the All-Star break. The veteran centre has just nine points (3G / 6A) in 25 games this season.
Desharnais will miss the next 6-8 week with a knee injury.
Desharnais left Tuesday’s game with a knee injury and the HAbs announced this evening that he will miss at least six weeks. This is a huge blow for the Canadiens, who will also be without centre Alex Galchenyuk for 6-8 weeks.
Desharnais (lower-body) will not play on Wednesday.
Desharnais suffered a foot injury in the Canadiens game in Arizona on Monday. With Desharnais out, Lars Eller is expected to move into the Habs’ top-6. Desharnais is listed day-to-day for now without a timeframe for his return.
Desharnais has registered a goal and two assists in his last two games, which were both Canadiens losses. He swapped places with Tomas Plekanec in practice on Thursday and is expected to skate in between Max Pacioretty and Dale Weise on Saturday.
