The Vancouver Canucks just finished a seven-game road trip mostly through the Eastern Conference with a strong 5-1-1 record. However it was a little costly in terms of health.
On Monday coach John Tortorella updated the injury list and it took the Canucks a few tweets to get it all across.
Schroeder will be out for two months. Hansen is 3-4 weeks away.— Vancouver Canucks (@VanCanucks) October 28, 2013
Booth will be out for 1-2 weeks.— Vancouver Canucks (@VanCanucks) October 28, 2013
Weise out for 3-4 weeks.— Vancouver Canucks (@VanCanucks) October 28, 2013
While the list doesn't include the big names like the Sedins, Ryan Kesler, or any of the defenseman and goalies, that's a lot of forward depth that the Canucks are going to be without for a while here. Those four players have combined for 37 games already this season. Just because they aren't the big scorers doesn't mean their spots won't be tough to fill.
In the meantime, the Canucks might need to look for an addition to their training staff.
