Canucks' Ryan Kesler played three games with broken foot

Canucks center Ryan Kesler has a broken right foot, the team said Wednesday.

The injury occurred when Kesler blocked a shot against the Stars on Feb. 21. He continued to play in the Canucks' next three games before a CAT scan revealed the fracture.

Kesler was held out of the team's practice Wednesday and reportedly was seen wearing an air cast on his right foot at Rogers Arena. He had scored one goal and added four assists in the Canucks' last seven games after returning from off-season shoulder surgery.

Jannik Hansen reportedly took Kesler's spot on a Canucks line with Chris Higgins and Mason Raymond.
