Montreal Canadiens defenseman Jordan Harris was unable to return to Sunday's contest against the St. Louis Blues after taking a hit from forward Sammy Blais.

The scary incident occurred in the first period of the Habs' 7-2 loss. Blais made contact with Harris along the boards behind Montreal's net as the rearguard was already falling. Harris struggled to get to his feet and had to be helped off the ice. The Canadiens later ruled him out with an upper-body injury.

Blais was handed a five-minute major and game misconduct for boarding.

Harris logged just under two minutes of ice time before exiting the matchup.

The 23-year-old has registered one goal and six points in 31 games this season.
