Vancouver Canucks’ centre Pavol Demitra will be sidelined 3-4 weeks after an MRI discovered fractured cartilage in his ribs.
Demitra, who signed with the Canucks as a free agent this summer, is expected to see a specialist to deal with the injury.
Kyle Wellwood is expected to take Demitra’s place in the lineup. Wellwood score his first goal of the season earlier this week.
