Vey likely to take Burrows’ spot in Canucks lineup

Whatever the nature of Alex Burrows’ strange injury situation may be – it sounds like a broken rib – he’s not playing for the Vancouver Canucks against the Calgary Flames in Game 4 tonight. Linden Vey will get that nod, according to Sportsnet’s John Shannon.

The Canucks do have other options if they lean away from Vey, though. They recalled Sven¬†Baertschi, but he’s expected to be a healthy scratch.

Then again, there’s always a chance that there could be more than one move.

Vey, 23, has 93 regular-season games under his belt, including 75 from the 2014-15 campaign with Vancouver. This would be his first career postseason appearance, though.
