Canucks’ Burrows out with broken jaw

Nashville, TN (SportsNetwork.com) – The Vancouver Canucks announced on Tuesday that  forward  Alex Burrows will  miss approximately  four weeks with a broken jaw.

Burrows  suffered  the  injury  during  Sunday’s 3-2  win  over  the  Carolina Hurricanes and underwent successful surgery on Monday.

“Alex  is a big  part of our team and it’s a big loss, but we’ll come together and he’ll be back soon,” said Canucks starting goaltender Roberto Luongo.

The  ninth-year  pro has  recorded just three  assists and is  a minus-7 in 17 games thus far this season.
