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 is a great day for me. This is something I've been thinking about for a long time. This is a great opportunity that the St. Louis Blues organization, (owner) Tom Stillman and Doug Armstrong are giving me and trusting me in doing...This is going to be a great challenge for me.
