Prust (ankle) will return to the lineup Saturday against the Blackhawks. Prust was expected to make his return Saturday, and that has now been confirmed as the case. Prior to the injury, the 31-year-old winger had himself a decent start to the season, notching five points in the first nine games, though he's yet to score a goal. He'll get his first chance to do so since the calendar turned to November on Saturday, facing a Blackhawks club yielding 3.25 goals per game on the road this season.
Prust (ankle) is expected to return to the lineup for Saturday's game against the Blackhawks, Canucks play-by-play announcer Jon Abbott reports. Prust was expected to be out 4-to-6 weeks after injuring his ankle in late October, but he is on track to return even earlier than the low end of his initial estimate. Prust will look to pick up where he left of after tallying five assists, a plus-three rating, and 25 PIM in his first nine games.
Prust (ankle) thinks he is about a week away from returning. Prust was initially expected to be out until at least December, so this development is great news for Prust and the Canucks. Before his injury, Prust was scoring at the highest rate of his career, with five points in nine games. Whether Prust can keep this pace going when he returns largely depends upon which line he returns to.
Prust (ankle) will missfour-to-six weeks with an ankle injury. The team didn't release the exact nature of Prust's ankle issue, it's obviously serious in nature. The timetable will set his return as late November at the earliest, but more likely some point in early-to-mid December. Brendan Gaunce was recalled from AHL Utica earlier in the week to provide some depth among the forward ranks, but it also appears that Chris Higgins may soon return from an injured reserve stint of his own.
Prust (ankle) will not travel with the Canucks for their upcoming two-game road trip, Sportsnet's Dan Murphy reports. It's an unfortunate turn of events for the 31-year-old grinder, as he just enjoyed his best game of the season, tallying two assists in Tuesday's 5-1 win over the Canadiens. His next chance to return to Vancouver's lineup will come Monday against the Flyers.
