To add injury to insult, the Canucks lost another defenseman to injury in last night’s 3-2 loss to the St. Louis Blues.
Andrew Alberts is out with a broken wrist; the Canucks have placed him on LTIR and called up Yann Sauve to replace him.
If you look at the list of walking wounded, it includes Dan Hamhuis, Alex Edler, Keith Ballard, Lee Sweatt, and now Alberts – that’s a better group of defensemen than some teams have in the lineup. If Sami Salo, who limped off the ice after the game, joins that list I’d dare say it’s one of the best group of defensemen in the league. (edit: According to AV, Salo should be okay.)
I’m not quite sure how to describe this run of injuries on the Canucks’ blueline.
The words ridiculous, comical and cursed come to mind.
If you can think of better words, please feel free to share.
