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

That's a really tough thing to play through; when you finally are thrown out there, the game is fast, intense, every single play matters, you've got to find a way to play through that and make smart plays. So it's a huge testament to [Vermette] and some other individuals in our locker room that are putting their own ego, their own wants and needs aside, and are ready for those opportunities when they do come.
