The procedure was performed by Dr. Ed Harvey at Montreal General Hospital.
Drouin was injured in Friday’s win over the Washington Capitals but, according to head coach Claude Julien, not as of the result of the massive hit he received from Alex Ovechkin. In 19 games this season, he has seven goals and 15 points.
“We’re in a sport where injuries unfortunately happen,” Julien said Monday. “We’re just going to hope it’s shorter than longer and we’re going to hope he comes back the way he left us.”
