Canucks D Salo out for 4 weeks with broken rib @NHLdotcom

VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) -Canucks defenseman Sami Salo will be out four weeks with a broken rib.

The team made the announcement at practice Friday.

The blue-liner was injured when he was driven into the boards by Edmonton's Ethan Moreau during a 4-2 home win over the Oilers on Wednesday night.

Salo, who had just returned to the lineup after missing three games with a groin injury, left the ice. No penalty was called on the play.

Salo has two goals and eight assists in 25 games this season.
