The Vancouver Canucks have been bit hard by the injury bug this season and that injury bug has bitten once again.
Vancouver, who is already dealing with the losses of Loui Eriksson and Alexander Edler, will be without Troy Stecher for the next 4-6 weeks due to a knee injury, the team announced on Tuesday.
Stecher, 23, was injured during Sunday’s game against the Detroit Red Wings.
The defenseman is in the final year of his entry-level contract.
Canucks Sign Jay Beagle, Antoine Roussel
The Vancouver Canucks have signed Antoine Roussel and Jay Beagle in a pair of moves that have been long rumored, according to Sportsnet’s Rick Dhaliwal.
Roussel, 28, scored 5 goals and collected 12 assists in 73 games last year for the Dallas Stars.
Beagle, 32, was a part of the Washington Capitals during their run to the Stanley Cup.

Pettersson shined in his first season in the SHL, leading the league in regular season scoring with 59 points, and playoff scoring with 19 points, which are both new SHL records by a U20 player.
“Elias is a talented offensive player with tremendous vision and skill,” Vancouver general manager Jim Benning said in a release.
“Like most Canucks fans we watched with excitement the incredible season he had in Sweden. This is an important offseason of training and development for Elias and we expect him to be ready to challenge for a roster spot in training camp.”
Pettersson was named Rookie of the Year and Best Forward as well as Most Valuable Player for the regular season and the playoffs.
