OEL is OUT.
The Canucks defenceman has suffered a fractured foot at the IIHF World Championships and will be sidelined for four-to-six weeks, the club announced Sunday.
The Swede, who served as the captain for his country, had blocked a shot during a May 15th game against the Czech Republic. He played two more games, before leaving during a game against the United States last weekend.
