Canucks Dealt Brutal Injury News

The 0-4-2 Vancouver Canucks are continuing to receive bad news, as several players are now set to miss time due to injuries. While speaking with the media, head coach Bruce Boudreau announced that Quinn Hughes and Travis Dermott will be out week-to-week, while Brock Boeser and Riley Stillman are deemed as being day-to-day.

Out of the quartet, Hughes injury being labeled as week-to-week is the biggest blow. Although it was established that the 23-year-old is dealing with a lower-body injury, it was once believed to be a day-to-day ailment. Instead, the Canucks will be without him for much longer. In five games this season, the top-pairing d-man has five helpers. 

Dermott has been out with a concussion since the beginning of the season. This week-to-week diagnosis is brutal to see, as it shows that the 25-year-old's injury is becoming long-term. In 60 games last season, he had two goals and seven points. 

Although Boeser and Stillman should be back shortly, it is bad that they will have to miss at least one game from here. The Canucks need wins now, and losing more players to injuries simply is horrible for them.
