Demitra Out 3-4 Weeks

From TSN:

Vancouver Canucks’ centre Pavol Demitra will be sidelined 3-4 weeks after an MRI discovered fractured cartilage in his ribs.

Demitra, who signed with the Canucks as a free agent this summer, is expected to see a specialist to deal with the injury.

Kyle Wellwood is expected to take Demitra’s place in the lineup.

Lordy. Demitra’s penchant for injury is astonishing. Possibly the luckiest day of Wellwood’s life, though…
