Motte (upper body) won't be ready for the start of the regular season, Ben Kuzma of The Vancouver Province reports.

The Canucks have yet to release a specific timetable for Motte's return, but it looks like he'll be sidelined for at least a few games to start the season. The 26-year-old forward, who picked up nine points in 24 contests last year, is still recovering from offseason surgery.
