These injury updates are almost becoming a daily thing.
Last night, the Canucks lost Brandon Sutter to a shoulder injury and he is expected to miss a good chuck on time. Add that to the already ridiculously long list of injuries in the organization and it’s getting a little out of hand.
Given the latest round of injuries, the Canucks placed Chris Tanev and the aforementioned Sutter on IR to allow them to recall Darren Archibald and Brendan Gaunce.

The Archibald recall was confirmed by the Canucks shortly after the initial report but at this moment, the Gaunce recall is not announced.
We’ll have to wait to see how the lines shake out with the new additions and if any players come back from injury over the next couple of days. Guillaume Brisebois remains with the Canucks as the 7th defenceman.
