ANAHEIM, CA - MARCH 11: Ryan Kesler #17 of the Vancouver Canucks lines up in position prior to a defensive zone face-off against the Anaheim Ducks at Honda Center on March 11, 2009 in Anaheim, California. The Ducks defeated the Canucks 4-3 in overtime. (Photo by Victor Decolongon/Getty Images)
Ryan Kesler lasted only seven games before being forced out of the Vancouver Canucks' lineup again. The Canucks said Wednesday that Kesler will be out for up to six weeks because of a broken right foot. The fracture was revealed on a CT scan. It is unclear when the injury occurred, but coach Alain Vigneault said Kesler might have been playing with it before it was diagnosed. Kesler played over 19 minutes against Phoenix on Tuesday and earned an assist. Kesler didn't practice on Wednesday and was seen wearing an air cast. He returned to action two weeks ago after taking longer to recover from offseason shoulder surgery. He had a goal and four assists in seven games before being injured again. Kesler has 154 goals and 188 assists in 568 NHL career games, all with the Canucks.
