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

Not only is it a great idea, but if you don't [start using analytics] you're going to fall behind. You have to be on the cutting edge. It was [Arizona Coyotes assistant general manager] Darcy Regier who said, 'If you didn't invent it, you have to be the second- or third-best copier, because if you're fourth or fifth you've got no chance.'
