The Montreal Canadiens are dealing with injury issues on their blueline, and training camp is still more than a month away.

The Montreal Gazette and RDS report that defenceman Francis Bouillon experienced pain in his knee last week when he started skating and will fly to Vail, Colorado, to be examined by a doctor.

The Gazette adds that defenceman Mark Streit is suffering from tendinitis in his knees, which may be the result of too much time on the stationary bike.

The Canadiens re-signed Bouillon to a $5.63 million, three-year contract after he posted career highs in assists (19) and points (22) last season.

Streit played in 48 games during his first NHL season, scoring two goals with nine assists and 28 penalty minutes.

Francis Boullion's status for the start of the Montreal Canadiens' training camp next month is up in the air.

TSN's sister station in Quebec RDS reports that the veteran defenceman underwent surgery on his left knee on Wednesday after having it examined by a doctor in Vail, Colorado.

There is no official word on the extent of Boullion's injury or how long he will be sidelined, but local reports say he could be out from four to six weeks. Bouillon made the trip to Vail after experiencing pain in his knee last week when he started skating.

The Canadiens re-signed Bouillon to a $5.63 million, three-year contract last month after he posted career highs in assists (19) and points (22).
