Canadiens' Emelin to miss start of next season

The SportsXchange

Montreal Canadiens defenseman Alexei Emelin, who was lost for the season when he tore ligaments in his knee in early April, is not expected to be available for the beginning of next season either, the Montreal Gazette reported.

He has yet to have surgery on his knee.

Emelin, 27, led Montreal in hits this year, with 110, even though he missed the final 10 games of the regular season. He had three goals and nine assists in 38 games for the Canadiens this year.
