Vancouver Canucks head coach John Tortorella was in a bartering mood Monday.
Here was his proposed deal: if reporters refrained from inquiring daily about injuries, he would provide a nice little list for us on what was happening in the team's infirmary.
So how could we resist? We couldn't.
The worst news was on centre Jordan Schroeder, who refractured his left ankle Oct...
Vancouver Canucks head coach John Tortorella provided several updates after the team’s morning skate today. It’s not looking very good for the team as several players will be out for many weeks. He provided updates for Jordan Schroeder, Jannik Hansen, Dale Weise, and David Booth.
“Schroeder is out for two months and will likely require a pin in his ankle”, said Tortorella...
The Vancouver Canucks center Jordan Schroeder was sent back to Vancouver while the team is on a seven game road trip so he can get his injured left foot examined.
The injury to Schroeder was suffered this past Saturday against the Pittsburgh Penguins, a shootout loss. Against the Edmonton Oilers in a pre-season game, he fractured the same foot while blocking a shot. He missed...
Young Vancouver Canucks forward Jordan Schroeder left Saturday’s game against the Pittsburgh Penguins with a foot injury and won’t return.
Head coach John Tortorella’s shot-blocking strategies prompted the Vancouver Province’s Ben Kuzma to clarify that Schroeder 23 didn’t hurt his foot getting in front of a puck.
Former first round pick could be odd man out
There’s really only one spot for Jordan Schroeder on the 2013-14 Vancouver Canucks roster, and there’s a strong chance it won’t be the right fit.
With Henrik Sedin and Ryan Kesler taking up the top two centre positions, the logical place to slot Schroeder in is as a third line centre, but even that seems a little up in the air.
Jordan Schroeder is confident he’ll be ready for training camp so he can show the Canucks he deserves the one-way contract that was announced on Wednesday.
Vowing to be recovered from May 21 shoulder labrum surgery by mid-September training camp the 5-foot-8 175-pound centre was pumped after getting the deal — for one year and $600000 — out of the way.
He was also just as...
Vancouver Canucks President and General Manager Michael D. Gillis announced today that the Canucks have re-signed centre Jordan Schroeder.
Schroeder 22 split the 2012.13 season with the Canucks and AHL Chicago Wolves. In his NHL debut season he posted nine points (3-6-9) and four penalty minutes in 31 games played. He finished fourth on the Wolves in goal scoring with 12 goals and...
Down The Middle
Another year, another question mark for the Vancouver Canucks at third line centre.
The patchwork system of Jordan Schroeder, Derek Roy and even Mason Raymond at times is now down to Schroeder, newly signed Brad Richardson and a handful of promising prospects.
It wouldn’t be a problem if a fourth line centre spot was all that was up for grabs, but the Canucks knew...
A look at the rook
Just thought I would check in and take a quick look at Canucks rookie Jordan Schroeder. Schroeder was called up to the Canucks almost as fast as he was sent down.
After two disappointing games with Andrew Ebbett as the second line center, master juggler and lozenge enthusiast, Alain Vigneault did a little line juggling.
Included in that juggling was the call up...

Now that Canucks camp is underway, we can finally talk about hockey matters again.
Namely, that Ryan Kesler is still injured and can’t move his arm above his surgically reconstructed shoulder.
His absence leaves a giant void in the middle of the second line that the Canucks will scramble to find an answer for during this shortened training camp.
Maxim Lapierre is...
