The Vancouver Canucks
say forward David Booth
will miss four to six weeks with a sprained MCL following a knee-on-knee collision with Colorado's Kevin Porter
Porter was given a kneeing major and a game misconduct for the incident, which took place 10:55 into what turned out to be a 6-0 victory by the Canucks. Booth left the game and did not return. Porter will have a disciplinary hearing with the NHL on Thursday.
Booth, 27, has five goals and 12 points in 19 games since joining the Canucks in a trade with the Florida Panthers
The Canucks recalled forward Bill Sweatt
from the AHL Chicago Wolves on Wednesday and returned Victor Oreskovich
