Montreal Canadiens general manager Marc Bergevin addressed the media earlier today to address Zack Kassian’s status following his car accident over the weekend.

According to Bergevin, Kassian broke his nose and his foot after a car he was a passenger in crashed into a tree early Sunday morning.

Bergevin was not happy with his 24-year-old forward, stating that he’s "disappointed" with Kassian.

"You have to be professional, have to behave like a professional," Bergevin added, according to Habs Eyes on the Prize. "You’re lucky to be playing hockey. I’m a big believer in character, and that’s a lack of character and judgement on his part."

"We took a risk, and we gave him a chance. Eventually you become responsible for your actions. We’ll see what happens."

The Canadiens acquired Kassian from the Vancouver Canucks in exchance for Brandon Prust. Kassian, a former first-round draft pick, finished with 10 goals and six assists in 42 games last season.

Montreal hasn’t placed Kassian on their injured reserve yet.
