Montreal will be without the services of gritty forward Ryan White for a couple of weeks, head coach Michel Therrien announced on Monday.

White, who suffered the injury against Dallas last week and sat out Saturday’s 4-3 OT loss to Ottawa, has been a solid energy guy for the Habs this season. He sits second among all Canadiens forwards in hits (55) and has fought four times this year, trailing only George Parros and Brandon Prust (who have each dropped the mitts six times.)

Montreal’s third-round pick at the 2006 NHL Entry Draft, White has spent his entire career with the Habs organization. He’s appeared in 33 games this year and has no goals, two points and 32 penalty minutes.
