The Vancouver Canucks announced today that winger Brandon Prust will be out 4-6 weeks with an ankle injury.
Prust rolled his ankle Tuesday against Montreal. To that point, the 31-year-old winger had been a productive addition for Vancouver, registering five assists in nine games.
To replace Prust, Brendan Gaunce was called up from AHL Utica and made his NHL debut last night in Dallas.
Veteran winger Chris Higgins is also set to return shortly. He’s missed all 10 games with a foot injury.
The Canucks play tonight in Arizona.
