Montreal Canadiens defenceman Josh Gorges was sent home from Phoenix on Thursday to have a hand injury re-examined by team doctors.

Gorges is believed to have suffered the injury while blocking a shot with a hand during Montreal's win over the Toronto Maple Leafs on Saturday.

The Canadiens added to their defensive depth this week by acquiring veteran Mike Weaver from the Florida Panthers.
