Canucks' Salo injures Achilles
Vancouver Canucks defenseman Sami Salo suffered an Achilles tear while training and is out indefinitely pending further evaluation, the club announced Friday.

The Canucks said there will be no further comment from the club or Salo at this time.

Salo, 35, played in 68 games last season, recording 9 goals and 19 assists, and was a plus-14. He added 1 goal and 5 assists in 12 playoff games. In 665 career regular-season games with the Ottawa Senators and Canucks, Salo has 81 goals and 192 assists, with 9 goals and 17 assists in 74 playoff games.
Quote of the Day

The groove of being behind a bench is going to be interesting at first, but thank God we have a few exhibition games to get rid of those cobwebs. Overall the excitement of it all and the freshness and coming back refreshed, all those things are going to be assets. If [the players] come ready to give their best effort in practice and games, good things are going to happen. I'm always looking for results. It's not always on the scoreboard. It's winning and building something.
