Canucks Defenseman Placed on LTIR

After originally being placed on IR, the Vancouver Canucks have now quickly moved Tucker Poolman to LTIR.

Poolman's LTIR placement is retroactive to Oct. 18, so he is not able to return to action until Nov. 11. This is bad news for a winless Canucks club, as they are now going to be without one of their regulars on the blueline for at least two more weeks. 

With Poolman hitting LTIR, the Canucks have now brought up fellow defenseman Guillaume Brisebois from the AHL. The 25-year-old has 10 games of NHL experience on his resume, where he has yet to record a point and has a minus-5 rating.
