The Montreal Canadiens are going to be without Joel Armia for quite some time.

The team announced that the 25-year old Finnish forward will be sidelined for the next 6-8 weeks after sustaining a right knee injury.

He sustained the injury when he collided with Brendan Smith during the team’s 5-3 loss to the New York Rangers at Madison Square Garden on Tuesday.

Armia, who was acquired in a trade with the Winnipeg Jets back in June, has posted three goals, and four assists in 15 games this season.
