The Vancouver Canucks’ forward group was already wobbly with Alex BurrowsJordan Schroeder and Jannik Hansen on the mend. Now it looks like you can add Dale Weise and David Booth to that group after Thursday’s game against the New Jersey Devils.

(Booth’s struggles were already making some waves, yet now he’s injured.)

The Vancouver Sun’s Brad Ziemer jokes that head coach John Tortorella couldn’t turn to his fourth line because there “isn’t one.” He also confirmed that neither Weise (leg/lower-body) and Booth (undisclosed) will be back during tonight’s action.

At the moment, the Canucks are hanging in there with a 2-2 score, even though they only have 11 shots on goal.

    Booth is essentially dead weight until he gets the Ballard treatment in the off-season (compliance buyout after being placed on waivers).
