Montreal Canadiens defenceman Noah Juulsen will consult a specialist for a second opinion regarding his headaches.

The Canadiens say they are making the move after getting approval from the defenceman and his agent.

The 22-year-old native of Surrey, B.C., played just 21 games for the Canadiens last season. On Feb. 1, he was ruled to be out indefinitely with a vision-related issue.

Meanwhile, the Canadiens say forward Michael McCarron is day-to-day with a groin injury.
