Heavy losses for the Canucks

Lourdes pertes pour les Canucks

A few minutes after the acquisition of Tyler Toffoli of the Los Angeles Kings, the general manager of the Canucks, Jim Benning, has been a part of two bad news about forwards Brock Boeser and Michael Ferland.

The first will be absent for at least the next three weeks due to a fracture of the costal cartilage. His status will be evaluated at the end of this term. The male of 22 years old has suffered this injury against the Calgary Flames, on February 8. He has tallied 45 points in 56 games this season.

For his part, Ferland is still suffering from a concussion, so he has only played 14 games this year. He will miss the rest of the season. The attacker, 27-year-old was sent to the american hockey League to regain a physical condition suitable for playing in the national hockey League, but as soon as his first game, on Friday, he suffered a relapse.

These injuries occur at a very bad time for the Canucks, who are at the heart of the fight for the playoffs. They are the third largest of the section and the Pacific.
