Slafkovsky first missed Saturday's loss to the Dallas Stars with the injury and has not skated since. He also missed Tuesday's 3-1 loss to the Minnesota Wild.
The 18-year-old from Slovakia has one goal in five games so far this season.
The Habs will enter their trip sitting at 3-4-0 on the season coming off two straight losses.
