Vancouver Canucks centre Ryan Kesler out with a broken right foot

VANCOUVER - Vancouver Canucks forward Ryan Kesler has a broken right foot and could be sidelined for up to six weeks.

Canucks coach Alain Vigneault told reporters the fracture showed up on a CT scan this morning.

"I assume Kesler will be out for a little while," Vigneault said.

Kesler did not practise with the Canucks today and was seen wearing an air cast.

Kesler has played just seven games this season after he took longer than expected to recuperate from off-season shoulder surgery.

He had a goal and four assists centring the Canucks' second line.

Quote of the Day

This team has been a real treat to say you've been the head coach of them. I'm extremely proud of this group ... after the disappointment of (the Game 6 loss) is digested, it's always a lot easier as a coach when your team has emptied its tank, and that team emptied its tank for me for three months.

— Senators coach Dave Cameron after getting eliminated in the first round by the Canadiens
