Several key players are out with injuries and teams like the Anaheim Ducks, the Minnesota Wild and the Washington Capitals have been given touch blows... well they are not the only ones. 

Friday morning, we reported that Vancouver Canucks defenseman Alex Edler left Thursday night's game against the Winnipeg Jets after a seemingly innocent contact with Mark Scheifele. But it was worse than we thought. 

Coach Travis Green gave an update on Saturday, and it isn't good.

The Canucks are off to a 1-1-1 start, and after the season they had last year, an injury to a key defenseman is the last thing they need.

Here's where he appears to have gotten injured.
