Kesler casts off the grey, set to play again today

  • Print

VANCOUVER -- Ryan Kesler no longer has to worry about wearing a grey jersey in practice.

Having discarded the grey duds that signal an injured player, he is slated to put on a regular Canucks jersey today as Vancouver (8-2-2) hosts the Dallas Stars (7-6-1).

Barring an unexpected change, Kesler will play for the first time since the opening round of last spring's playoffs. He spent the off-season and NHL lockout recuperating from shoulder and wrist injuries that bothered him last season and required surgery.

Devils' Zubrus has surgery

NEWARK, N.J. -- New Jersey Devils left wing Dainius Zubrus has had surgery on his left wrist.

The team announced the exploratory surgery Thursday, saying Zubrus would be sidelined four to six weeks. He has missed four games since suffering the injury against the New York Rangers.

GM Lou Lamoriello Wednesday reacquired left-wing Alexei Ponikarovsky from Winnipeg for two draft picks to add depth. Lamoriello admitted there was an urgency to act in the trade market because of Zubrus.

Malhotra's season over

VANCOUVER -- Manny Malhotra's season is over because he has not adapted sufficiently following his career-threatening eye injury, says Vancouver Canucks general manager Mike Gillis.

The club placed the 32-year-old forward on injured reserve Thursday for the rest of the season. Gillis said he made the move to preserve Malhotra's long-term health because Malhotra remains vulnerable to a serious injury.

Malhotra is in the final year of a three-year contract. Pending a new deal with another club, his career could be finished.
