Vancouver Canucks Not At Olympics Return to Practice on Wednesday

Vancouver Canucks players who are not participating in the Olympics will return to practice on Wednesday at 3 p.m.

“I’m just preparing a little bit of a mini training camp, especially those first four days, 19th through the 22nd, just to get back at it and the details where I think we’re struggling a bit,” Canucks head coach John Tortorella told listeners on the TEAM 1040 last week.

“It’s a clean slate. It is a 22-game schedule and we’re in the fight of our life. We have a lot of people back in and it’s not just one or two teams, it’s a number of teams.”

Before the Canucks went on the Olympic Break, they had six injured players: Andrew Alberts (concussion), Mike Santorelli (shoulder surgery), Chris Tanev (broken thumb), Kevin Bieksa (bruised foot), Henrik Sedin (bruised ribs), and Alexandre Burrows (sprained hand).

Alberts is out indefinitely with a concussion stemming from a hit-to-the-head from Calgary Flames winger Brian McGrattan in late December. Santorelli is done for the year with right shoulder surgery. Tanev, Bieksa, Henrik, and Burrows are believed to be day-to-day.

It will be interesting how many of these players—if any—and whether Tortorella will be at practice on Wednesday.
