MONTREAL — The Montreal Canadiens say forwards Alex Galchenyuk and David Desharnais will each be out six to eight weeks with knee injuries.

Desharnais, who has three goals and six assists this season, was injured in the second period of Montreal's 3-2 overtime loss at St. Louis on Tuesday night

As a result of the injuries, the Canadiens recalled forward Sven Andrighetto from the American Hockey League's St. John's IceCaps.
