Police say they received an emergency call at 11pm about an attack on the corner of Sainte-Catherine and Saint-Marc streets.
When officers arrived at the scene, they found the victim lying on the sidewalk.
He was taken to the hospital and was conscious during transport, according to Caroline Chèvrefils, a spokeswoman for the Montreal Police Department (SPVM).
