Montreal Canadiens head coach Jacques Martin says that the chance of Andrei Markov playing in October is "out of the question" while the defenceman continues to rehab from knee surgery.

Martin told reporters on Tuesday that Markov's rehab is, "on schedule" and will continue under the supervision of Dr. James Andrews, who Markov saw on Monday in Florida. Markov will be seen by Dr. Andrews again by the end of the week.

Markov was unable to start the regular season while he continued to recover from ACL surgery on his right knee.

The 32-year-old blueliner missed all but seven games last season while recovering from two knee surgeries. He originally hurt his knee during the 2010 playoffs against the Pittsburgh Penguins, and then was injured again after getting mixed up with Eric Staal in a game against the Carolina Hurricanes last November.

The Canadiens re-signed him to a three-year, $17.25 million contract in June.
