Bieksa Suffers Leg Cut

from Ian MacIntyre of the Vancouver Sun,

“I went to put pressure on it to skate back to the net and my ankle kind of gave out,” Bieksa said. “I thought maybe my skate blade was broken, but I kind of figured it out from there. It’s not my Achilles at all.”

Bieksa said he didn’t want to discuss any details about the injury until he knows more. But he leaned heavily on a crutch as he left the dressing room and will be going back to Vancouver today. The injury will probably be measured in weeks, possibly many of them, not days.

Asked the extent of it, coach Alain Vigneault said: “We’re not quite sure yet. He got a skate cut and we’re not sure of the severity of it, so we’ll know tomorrow after a MRI.”
