Kevin Bieksa Out at Least Two Weeks

From Jason Botchford at Canucks Nation:

The Canucks will be without their top defenceman for at least two weeks.

Early Thursday, an X-ray revealed Bieksa has a hairline fracture on his foot. He was hurt when his teammate Michel Ouellet wired a slap shot off his left foot in a game against Nashville. Bieksa has played three games since then.

Yesterday, J.J. at Canucks Hockey Blog was pondering the wisdom of possibly trading away a defenseman, and remarked:

Also, the Canucks have depth on defense right now, but admittedly, they’ve been lucky and relatively injury-free to start the season. Can they stay that way?

Of course not.
