The Montreal Canadiens got more bad news on the injury front on Tuesday, as head coach Jacques Martin told reporters that defenceman Marc-Andre Bergeron and winger Benoit Pouliot will be sidelined until at least March.

Bergeron will be out for six to eight weeks with a left knee injury, while Martin said that Pouliot has an 'upper body injury.'

Bergeron left the team's Feb. 4 game against the Boston Bruins after he was hit in the leg with a shot and missed the weekend's games against Pittsburgh and Boston.

Bergeron, 29, was signed as an unrestricted free agent last fall. In 51 games with the Canadiens this season, he has 10 goals and 28 points.

Pouliot, acquired from the Minnesota Wild in a trade for winger Guillaume Latendresse, has 11 goals and 14 points in 20 games with the Canadiens.
