Guillaume Latendresse Out Four to Six Weeks with Shoulder Dislocation

Fred PoulinCorrespondent IFebruary 4, 2009

The Montreal Canadiens have announced earlier today that forward Guillaume Latendresse will miss four to six weeks of activity as a result of the shoulder injury he sustained during Sunday's contest against the Boston Bruins.

Latendresse separated his left shoulder when he fell awkwardly into the boards after he collided with Bruins' Chuck Kobasew. Latendresse should be back into action in early March.

No. 84 has nine goals and nine assists in 43 games this season with the Habs. His absence means Max Pacioretty will stay at least one more month with the Canadiens. The latter played very well yesterday on a line with Max Lapierre and Sergei Kostitsyn.
