Report: Vrbata’s injury not serious


Radim Vrbata‘s injury, suffered last night against Colorado, is not believed to be serious, according to Sportsnet’s Elliotte Friedman.

The 34-year-old winger left the game after taking an awkward fall in the third period of Vancouver’s 5-1 win. Earlier in the contest, he’d scored his 12th goal of the season (and his first since Jan. 14.)

A pending unrestricted free agent, the Canucks are expected to explore trading Vrbata prior to Monday’s deadline. There have reportedly been scouts from the Chicago Blackhawks taking a look at him.
