Noah Juulsen's health problems have not subsided.

The Montreal Canadiens defenseman will consult a specialist to get a second opinion about his headaches, the club announced Tuesday. Juulsen and his agent, Jason Taylor, approved the decision.

Juulsen was ruled out indefinitely in February with what the team called a vision-related issue. He appeared in only 21 games with the Canadiens last season and none after Dec. 17.

The 22-year-old was initially ruled out indefinitely in November after suffering a facial fracture when he took a puck to the face during a game.

He appeared in 23 NHL contests during his rookie season in 2017-18, as well as 31 games with the AHL's Laval Rocket. Juulsen also played three contests with the Rocket last season.

Montreal drafted Juulsen 26th overall in 2015.
