Armia suffered the injury in the second period when he was in a knee-on-knee collision with defenceman Brendan Smith. Armia left the ice after the collision and did not return.
Armia, 25, was acquired by the Canadiens from the Winnipeg Jets over the summer. In 14 games this season he has three goals and seven points.
