On Saturday, Vancouver coach John Tortorella confirmed winger Alex Burrows, who plays alongside Daniel and Henrik Sedin on the club's top unit, will be out with a lower-body injury.
"He's going to be out a couple of weeks, that's where we are going to leave it right now," Tortorella told NHL.com.
The 32-year-old native of Pincourt, Que., was hurt blocking a shot while killing a penalty in the team's 4-1 loss to San Jose Thursday night.
While Tortorella was non-committal on the nature of Burrows's ailment, reports have suggested he suffered a foot injury.
Burrows scored 13 goals in the lockout-shortened campaign last year and is a four-time 20-goal scorer. Originally undrafted, he scored a career high 35 goals in 2009-10 and is a plus-130 overall in just over eight seasons — all with the Canucks.
