With Alex Edler already on the shelve with a knee injury, it appears that the Canucks forward Loui Eriksson may be soon joining him in the infirmary.

The play came during Eriksson’s first shift of the game.
The shove by Glass is a dangerous play and the outcome is exactly why. Eriksson is unable to stop and crashes hard into the net with his left knee bending from the impact. Eriksson stayed on the bench for a bit but left the game shortly after that. It was later announced that he would not return for the remainder of the contest.
The Canucks begin an east coast road trip on Tuesday, so we may not have a full idea of the injury for a day or two. Jake Virtanen was a healthy scratch tonight, so it’s fair to assume he would be re-inserted into the lineup.
If the Canucks do recall a forward, which is likely, Nikolay Goldobin has 3 goals and 2 assists in four games while Reid Boucher has 6 assists in those four games.
