The Montreal Canadiens announced Saturday that defenceman Jeff Petry will be out indefinitely with a lower-body injury.

Petry joins Jonathan Drouin, who is also out indefinitely with an upper-body injury. Drouin was added to the injured reserve on Friday.

The 34-year-old picked up four goals and 12 assists in 57 games for the Habs this season. The Canadiens are set to take on the Toronto Maple Leafs Saturday night in Montreal.
