MONTREAL -- Michael Cammalleri's plans for the all-star break have changed.
The Montreal Canadiens winger won't be on a golf course in Florida.
He'll probably be in a gym in Montreal riding a stationary bike.
Cammalleri was put on the injured reserve list Thursday morning, confirming what everybody suspected: He will be out for a while with an upper-body injury, believed to be a separated shoulder.
"I'll be working with training and treatment and rehab right away," said Cammalleri, who was injured when he was crosschecked into the boards by Buffalo Sabres defenceman Mike Weber Tuesday night.
Cammalleri is expected to be out for about a month.
"I'll be working right through the break (at the end of the month)," he said. "You can't golf with an upper-body injury."
The Canadiens called up winger Ryan White from Hamilton of the American Hockey League.
Cammalleri joins defencemen Josh Gorges and Andrei Markov, both out for the season with knee injuries, on the injured reserve list.
"Right away, I felt it," Cammalleri said. "I kind of knew what I was dealing with right away."
About the hit?
"I really have nothing good to say about it."
Cammalleri was in his second game back after dealing with strep throat.
"I was really excited about getting back after being sick, and optimistic about the second-half push here," said Cammalleri, who has 13 goals, third on the Habs. "I'll be okay ... I really don't know as far as a timeline. We still have some tests to do."
Forwards Jeff Halpern (also believed to have a shoulder injury) and Max Pacioretty, who was taken to hospital after being hit in the ribs with a shot Tuesday, are both listed as day-to-day. Halpern was on the ice for the start of practice but left and will not play in Ottawa against the Senators Friday night.
Forward Benoit Pouliot, meanwhile, has recovered from his bout with the flu and was on the ice and should be able to play Friday.
The Canadiens lines at practice Thursday shaped up this way: Andrei Kostitsyn-Tomas Plekanec-Lars Eller; Pacioretty-Scott Gomez-Brian Gionta; Pouliot-David Desharnais-Mathieu Darche; Tom Pyatt-Andreas Engqvist-Travis Moen.
