Montreal Canadiens forward Blake Geoffrion has been cleared by the team's medical staff to return home for three weeks of rest after being treated for a depressed skull fracture suffered during a game between the Syracuse Crunch and the Hamilton Bulldogs on Nov. 9 at the Bell Centre.

"I want to sincerely thank all fans, friends, family members and everyone from the hockey world for the incredible support I have received," Geoffrion said in a statement.

"I am very happy to be home for Thanksgiving. I would like to thank Dr. Mulder and the club's medical staff, as well as the entire medical personnel at the Montreal General Hospital for their extraordinary care. I am very grateful to Geoff Molson and Marc Bergevin for the unrelenting support they have shown myself and the members of my family. I also wish to thank all members of the media for respecting this healing period."

Geoffrion, 24, is out indefinitely but the medical staff is expecting a complete recovery from his injury.
