Jannik Hansen could be out a week for Vancouver
Vancouver Canucks winger Jannik Hansen could be out a week after a suffering a rib injury in practice.
Willie Desjardins provided the update after the Canucks' loss to the New York Islanders on Tuesday. Emerson Etem looked strong but didn't score in Hansen's place. Hansen is enjoying a career year with 19 goals in 57 games.
We had Hansen projected for four more goals and four more assists this season, but those numbers take a hit with this news. His 1.9 Relative Corsi For Percentage at Even Strength is well above his career average (-1.4) while his 49.2 Corsi For Percentage is slightly up from his 2014-'15 clip.
