Report: Canadiens Prospect Noah Juulsen Suffers Possible Career-Threatening Injury

Canadiens prospect Noah Juulsen has been dealing with an injury all season long, and it has some suspecting his career may be in jeopardy.
It was November 19th when the young defence-man took two shots to the face in the first period against Washington. He was forced to leave the game, and was held out for six weeks due to a facial fracture. Upon his return to Montreal, many noticed a dip in Juulsen's performance on the ice.

Apparently, so did Canadiens coach Claude Julien, who eventually had Juulsen assigned to the Laval Rocket.

Rumours had been spread about Juulsen sustaining an eye injury that has impaired his vision, and that his career may be question as a result.

The Canadiens released an update regarding the injury earlier today. While suspicions were confirmed that his injury was eye-related, and that he is out indefinitely, the Canadiens are confident that Juulsen will recover.

Let's hope this is the case for the former 1st round pick, seeing as how he's only 21 years old and hasn't even finished his entry level contract. He has a bright future in the NHL.
