Ryan Kesler and Keith Ballard Return to the Canucks Lineup

The Vancouver Canucks will have both centre Ryan Kesler and defenceman Keith Ballard back in the lineup when they host the Phoenix Coyotes at Rogers Arena.

Kelser has missed the last 19 games with a broken foot and last played February 26 against the same Coyotes.

Ballard is back after missing five games with a broken bone in his foot. He could have returned Saturday against the Calgary Flames, but head coach Alain Vigneault decided to keep him out of the lineup for one more game.
