The Vancouver Canucks have recalled center Jordan Schroeder from the AHL’s brawlin’ Chicago Wolves, according to News 1130 Sports.

The recall comes after winger David Booth was injured in Saturday’s 5-2 loss to the Red Wings.

Vancouver head coach Alain Vigneault expects Booth to “be out for a while.”

Schroeder has already played 22 games for the Canucks, scoring twice and adding three assists.

It was speculated 20-year-old prospect Nicklas Jensen may get the call to the big club, but apparently management felt Schroeder was the better option for now.

The Canucks host Minnesota tonight in a big Northwest Division game. Both teams are tied with 32 points, but the Wild have the tie-breaker based on regulation/overtime wins.
