The Vancouver Canucks cast their own version of ER

Top 5 Canuck Possible Injury Props

If anyone ever doubted the depth of the Vancouver roster and farm system, they may want to re-evaluate that judgment in light of recent injury developments.


The Canucks already entered this season with concerns over the post-surgery convalescence of both Ryan Kesler (hip) and Mason Raymond (compressed spine) from last season’s playoffs (as well as a host of other unannounced smaller aggravations).

Then to add further injury to insult, they have been forced his season to watch the endless parade of players to the treatment room like some kind of bizarre episode of M*A*S*H.

In these past few weeks we have seen Chris Higgins and his staphylococcus foot infection, David Booth’s exit due to a knee injury, Cody Hodgson removed from a game for ‘rung bell’ syndrome, and in the latest malady Daniel now has been experiencing back spasms.

He missed the Carolina game, but played versus the Leafs.

If it were not for the quality of players in numbers that Gillis has managed to assemble, we could have been looking at a real crisis, but the team has continued to do well despite the injury obstacle.

However, a team can only endure so much. Hopefully, the hospitalized numbers will ease off, but if not then the confidence borne of the excellent recent results could subside.

What can we expect next?
