Setback For Markov

via Renaud Levoie of RDS (translated),

Here he is now assured he will not play in December, because it will have an operation on his right knee.

He will undergo minor arthroscopic surgery to clean debris in his knee.

Is this good news? Not at all. But at least we understand a little better why Markov was not comfortable on the ice, he always pivoted on the same side.

Pierre Gauthier has confirmed what I told you last Monday, Markov believed to be able to play this week, but it was revised when he met with his doctor. It was determined that the situation did not improve as long as it will not be operated again. The problem is that the debris causing swelling and discomfort.

That said, if all goes well, Markov could be back on the ice in two weeks. Still, it must start from scratch because even if his knee was almost 100%, it will not off-ice training for several days.
