I don't think there has been an official word on his return date.

What I can find; http://www.montrealgazette.com/sport...873/story.html

The Canadiens are missing forwards Saku Koivu and Christopher Higgins but there’s some hope that Koivu may be back sooner than later. He has an unspecified lower body injury * think foot or ankle * but did some light skating on his own before Christmas.

well Laraque would be easy choice i think. As well as Begin has played lately, i wouldn't pencil him in for every day play either.

It's so tough to scratch a guy like Begin after how amazingly he's played thus far

Yea but historically Begin suffers the more he plays because he injures himself over time we need him to stay healthy to be effective.

I'm worried, personally. These call ups, and now he's not on the road-trip... it's never a good sign when a team doesn't give even a rough return date, anyway. This injury could be worse than we think.

I honestly did not expect him to be back right after the break.
My guess is mid-late January.

Well you know what, even though injuries suck, I'd rather deal with them now as opposed to the end of the season/playoffs like last year. Get it out of the way.
