Montreal Canadiens forward Tyler Toffoli won’t practice on Monday and will be evaluated in the coming days for an upper-body injury.

Toffoli had two assists in Saturday’s 4-3 overtime loss to the Nashville Predators. The team recalled forward Laurent Dauphin from the AHL’s Laval Rocket.

In 26 games this season, Toffoli has five goals and 17 points.

The team also held defenceman Jeff Petry and forward Joel Armia out of practice for a therapy day.
