The Vancouver Canucks will be without defenseman Ben Hutton for “at least” two weeks because of an undisclosed injury.
The Canucks were just starting to get healthy on defense, as Luca Sbisa returned from a foot injury last Wednesday, but Hutton eventually got hurt in that game.
The 22-year-old rookie has been a surprising contributor for the Canucks in ’15-16.
Hutton made Vancouver’s opening night roster out of training camp despite having just four games of professional experience under his belt.
He has eight assists, a minus-6 rating and four penalty minutes while averaging almost 18 minutes of ice time in 20 games this season.
With Hutton on the shelf, the Canucks recalled Taylor Fedun from the minors. He served as a healthy scratch in Saturday’s game against the Blackhawks.
