Wrist Surgery For Erik Gudbranson

Vancouver, BC - Vancouver Canucks General Manager, Jim Benning announced today that defenceman, Erik Gudbranson will undergo surgery to repair ligament damage in his wrist. A projected timeline on Gudbranson's full recovery will be provided after the surgery.

"Erik suffered ligament damage to his wrist this season that has affected his wrist function," said Benning. "Continued treatment and rehabilitation have not improved his condition and Erik and our Canucks medical team believe that surgery offers the best long-term outcome and are confident in a full recovery. Erik's leadership qualities and strong physical presence will be missed but this is a decision that best supports a long, productive and healthy career."
