Wellwood Out With Broken Toe

via Jason Botchford of the White Towel,

The Canucks will have to start trying to avoid black cats and ladders because they can’t seem to catch a break.

Just as one player, Mathieu Schneider, is ready to come off the injury list today, Kyle Wellwood has to be put on. Wellwood suffered a broken toe after he blocked a Mike Komisarek slap shot with the big toe on his right foot.

Wellwood is expected to miss three weeks. To replace him, the Canucks have recalled Sergei Shirokov, who led the Moose in score with 10 points in 10 games, including four goals.
