VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) - Vancouver Canucks center Manny Malhotra will miss the rest of the season.
The 32-year-old Malhotra, placed on injured reserve, had no points in nine games this season.
There was no reason given for the move, but Canucks President Mike Gillis said the club's main concern is Malhotra's long-term health. In March 2011, he sustained a serious eye injury when struck by a puck.
Malhotra has 108 goals and 170 assists in 864 career games in 14 seasons with the New York Rangers, Dallas, Columbus, San Jose and Vancouver.
