Canadiens' Dach exits early with lower-body injury vs. Blackhawks

Montreal Canadiens forward Kirby Dach exited Saturday’s 3-2 win against the Chicago Blackhawks after sustaining a lower-body injury in the first period.

Dach appeared to be injured on a hit from Jarred Tinordi, which sent the 22-year-old into the Blackhawks’ bench.

Dach played only 4:40 before departing the contest.

The 2019 third overall pick was limited to 58 games last season due to an injury. Dach hasn’t played a full season since making his NHL debut in 2019.
