Alex Burrows Out After Jaw Surgery

via Luke Fox of Sportsnet,

The ideal Christmas gift for the Vancouver Canucks will be a healthy Alex Burrows.

The under-producing forward’s season took a turn for the worse Sunday, when teammate Chris Tanev hit Burrows in the face on a clearing attempt and broke his jaw during the second period of the Canucks’ 3-2 victory over the Carolina Hurricanes. (Watch the injury at the 1:40 mark of the video above.)

Burrows’ agent, Paul Corbiel, confirmed to Vancouver radio station News 1130 that his client underwent successful jaw surgery Monday night in Dallas.
