Comments Off on Canucks’ Schroeder hurts foot, won’t return Saturday

Young Vancouver Canucks forward Jordan Schroeder left Saturday’s game against the Pittsburgh Penguins with a foot injury and won’t return.

Head coach John Tortorella’s shot-blocking strategies prompted the Vancouver Province’s Ben Kuzma to clarify that Schroeder, 23, didn’t hurt his foot getting in front of a puck.

The Canucks drafted him 22nd overall in 2009. He hasn’t been able to generate a point in three games so far this season (including today). He had nine points in 31 contests last season.
