The Montreal Canadiens might be forced to put Paul Byron on long-term injured reserve. Byron had hip surgery back in July 2021 and is struggling to return to good health. Reports speculate that if he is put on LTIR his career could be over. Byron is currently thirty three years old and has skated in five hundred twenty one games.

This is sad news for the Canadiens and Byron. Byron has skated the last seven season for Montreal and he has been an effective veteran center for them. Byron's best years were with Montreal where he scored back-to-back twenty goal seasons in 2016 and 2017. His presence will be missed on the ice and in the locker room as Montreal is a young team. Byron was well liked by fans and his teammates for the hard work he put in each and every game. You never would question's Byron's work ethic. He always gave everything he could. Byron comes at an reasonable $3.4 million dollar cap hit. Once moved to LTIR, the Canadiens with not have that count against their cap space.

First and foremost, let's hope Paul Byron can get back to full health. If he can, it would be great to see him return to form and get back with Montreal as soon as possible. Hopefully, this is not the end of his career.
