Sbisa injured two fingers on his left hand during a fight Wednesday, but he will play Saturday against Blackhawks, Ben Kuzma of TSN 1040 reports. Sbisa was limited to just 6:02 of ice time in the contest because of the injury, but it appears a few days off did the trick. Barring something unforseen, he should once again pair with Dan Hamhuis for the contest.
Sbisa exited Wednesday's tilt against the Jets with an undisclosed injury. It isn't clear what kind of ailment Sbisa is dealing with, or when he suffered the injury, but the Canucks should provide an update on the blueliner's status once the team's training staff has a chance to evaluate him further.
Sbisa (ankle) will return to the lineup Wednesday against the Jets. Sbisa was placed on injured reserve Nov. 2 with the ankle injury, but has finally progressed to the point where he will rejoin the lineup. It's unclear who will be the odd man out because of his return, but it should become evident when the team takes the ice for warmups.
Sbisa (ankle) said he felt better while skating Sunday. Sbisa finally identified his ailment as a left-ankle injury, which he suffered October 30 against Arizona. Despite feeling better, Sbisa is unsure about a timeline for his return, and doesn't want to rush back. This doesn't make it seem as though he will return within the next week, but he should continue to receive top-four minutes when he does.
Sbisa was placed on injured reserve Monday with an undisclosed injury, Jeff Paterson of TSN 1040 reports. The exact nature of the injury is unclear at this point, but Sbisa had earlier been seen in a walking boot in the arena and it's believed he suffered the injury late in Friday's contest against the Coyotes. Coach Willie Desjardins indicated that the setback could be a serious one, saying "he'll be out longer" than just day-to-day.
