Canuck fans have found out today that defenceman Kevin Bieksa will be sidelined indefinitely after breaking his hand in yesterday’s game with the Tampa Bay Lightning.
Kevin Bieksa out indefinitely with a broken hand. Multiple fractures. Requires surgery. #Canucks

Bieksa broke his hand blocking a slap shot from Victor Hedman, and he’s now going to require some serious surgery.
With Bieksa out long-term, the Canucks might turn to Frankie Corrado and Yannick Weber to fill the void on the right side – only time will tell.
