Bieksa's Back! Tell Your Friends!

Harry How

Kevin Bieksa is expected to make his long awaited return after missing 5 games with a mystery lower body injury. Maybe this is what happened:

The Canucks need Juice. He's that right shot - physical presence that the team needs in the top 4. It's sorely lacking when he's not there.

Bieksa has 6 goals and 5 assists in 35 games this season. 2 of those goals have come against Edmonton this season. 2 of them are power play goals. Juice had 1 goal and 3 assists and was a +5 in the 7 games leading up to his injury. The Canucks had a 5-2 record in those games.

Hopefully the other right shot defenceman Frankie Corrado stays in the lineup as well. The kid is good!

As mentioned in the game preview post, Cory Schneider and Chris Tanev did not make the trip to Edmonton. Alain Vigneault is still mulling over his options of who he will dress against the Coilers from Edmonton.
