Canucks Injury Update: Dan Hamhuis sidelined with "significant" injury

By on 11/23/2014 01:40:00 AM

As the Canucks prepare to face the Chicago Blackhawks on Sunday at Rogers Arena, let's get the bad news out of the way first: Dan Hamhuis is out for several months, according to media reports.
"Told Dan Hamhuis' injury is significant. Not a short term thing (months not weeks). Had MRI yesterday. Seeing doctors again today."
That coming from NBC Sports' Pro Hockey Talk.
After seeing how Hamhuis went down on Thursday night, this is about what I expected to hear. Have the Canucks just joined the long list of teams looking to make a trade for help on defense?

The injury comes just as Luca Sbisa returned to the lineup, giving the Canucks seven healthy defensemen for the blink of an eye. Frank Corrado has been recalled from Utica, but it's most likely that Ryan Stanton will draw back in on Sunday against the Blackhawks.
