Montreal Canadiens left wing Max Pacioretty was taken to the hospital on Tuesday night. He was wheeled into an ambulance during the first intermission of the Canadiens game against the Buffalo Sabres.

Pacioretty was in front of the Sabres net, when he was struck on the right side by the puck. His teammate James Wisniewski shot the puck from the blue line.

He skated away holding his right arm after being hit by the puck, before falling to his knees near the right circle.

Team trainers went with Pacioretty to the hospital. He was conscious and was put on IV as he left the HSBC Arena.

The Canadiens would not update Pacioretty’s condition after the first period.

Depending on his injuries sustained during this injury, he could be out just a few days, or potentially even worse, as he may miss weeks. 

Montreal should send out information to the media when they expect him to return after the game. The Canadiens will not release anything until they have further information on his condition.

Pacioretty had two shifts in the game before leaving. 

In the team’s last five games, he has one goal and one assist for two points. He also has a -1 +/- and ^ PIM. He had one even-strength goal, which was also a game-winning goal, in 107 shits. 

He has not scored a goal since Jan. 8 against the Boston Bruins.
