The Vancouver Canucks announced that forwards Brandon Sutter and Josh Leivo are sidelined for two games and 3-4 months respectively.

Brandon Sutter and Leivo Injured

Brandon Sutter will miss the remaining two games preceding the holidays for Vancouver. So far this season, Sutter has scored five goals and three assists for eight points in 22 games. He has been largely a depth piece for Vancouver. However, still an important one that will be missed. He brings a bit of a physical element and can give the team some jump when it’s needed.

Josh Leivo this season had really started to find a role for himself with Vancouver. In 36 games he has seven goals and 12 assists for 19 points. He has become a guy who can play comfortably on just about any line for the team. With his skill and speed, there will no doubt be teams looking at him if things go wrong in Vancouver. However, he has a long way back unfortunately now.

What This Means for the Future
