Canucks Lose Johnson for 4 Weeks

From Jason Botchford at Canucks Nation in The Province:

[Ryan] Johnson learned Wednesday he has a fractured foot as well as a fractured finger, and is expected to miss the next four weeks.

The foot was apparently injured earlier in the season when Johnson was blocking a shot.

According to Botchford, the doctors apparently discovered the foot injury “when checking on his finger.” (The kind of doctors that ask you to take off your shirt when you mention a foot cramp, no doubt.)

Johnson will be sorely missed but it’s surprising this doesn’t happen to him more often, really. Throw yourself in front of a puck as often as he does, it’s a miracle you can walk at all most days.

P.S. A reminder: anticipating problems with Johnson, the Canucks did recall Alexandre Bolduc yesterday.

P.P.S. Dirty pictures of Fin to cheer you up.
