Team Canada's road to the gold medal at the World Hockey Championship will be traveled without P.K. Subban.

The Montreal Canadiens defenceman suffered a minor knee injury in Canada's pre-tournament game against Switzerland on Sunday and will be sidelined for approximately two weeks. He will not participate in the tournament.

Canadiens assistant general manager Larry Carriere said that Subban will return to Montreal where he will be re-evaluated by the team doctors.

The Toronto native sent out a Twitter message to his fans Tuesday night.

"For All Fans asking about injury, it was minor and will heal in 1-2 weeks #nobiggie"
