Canucks Player Dealing with Long-Term Injury, Probably Require Surgery

An unnamed player on the Vancouver Canucks is dealing with a long-term injury and will probably require offseason surgery, according to the Province’s Jason Botchford.

He reports:

I was told there is a Canuck playing through a long-term injury which probably needs surgery, but it’s not Kesler.

Take your guess who this player might be.

David Booth, Tom Sestito, Jannik Hansen, Zack Kassian, and Dale Weise have all missed time this season with injuries.

If I were to take a guess, I would go with Hansen and shoulder surgery. He fell violently, shoulder first into the boards back on October 22nd against the New York Islanders and missed ten games with what the team called an “upper body injury.”

On December 1st, Hansen fell into the boards shoulder first against the Carolina Hurricanes and was in obvious pain again. He briefly left the game, but returned seemingly better.
