 VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) -Vancouver Canucks defenseman Mattias Ohlund will miss at least four to six days, and possibly the rest of the regular season, after an MRI on Wednesday revealed bone chips in his left knee.
Ohlund will rest the next four to six days to see if the swelling goes down before deciding on arthroscopic surgery, which would likely keep him out for the rest of the season.
``For the regular season at least, but we'll wait and see, Ohlund said Thursday. ``But hopefully when it settles down I'll be able to finish the year and get into the playoffs and play a long time.''
Ohlund, whose eight goals and 22 assists lead a defensive group ravaged by injuries this season, wasn't bothered by the bone chips until the last couple of minutes of Tuesday night's 2-1 loss in Colorado. If he does play through it, Ohlund would have the chips removed in the offseason.
Rookie Luc Bourdon, recalled from Manitoba of the AHL on Wednesday, will take Ohlund's place in the lineup Thursday against Nashville, which leads the Canucks by two points for the final playoff spot in the Western Conference.
