Canucks' Bieksa sidelined

NHL.com @NHL
What was said to be "lower body soreness" after practice Thursday morning is now much more than that.  Kevin Bieksa will miss 2-4 weeks with a fracture of the metatarsal bone in his left foot.

Bieksa was spotted in a walking boot at last night's Sports Celebrities Festival after taking a day off practice to get x-rays.

He's been playing with pain in his foot since November 4, after blocking a shot in the game against Nashville.

Bieksa missed 39 games last season after suffering a calf injury, eerily enough against the Predators in early November.
