Canucks Duo to Miss Start of Season

Vancouver Canucks General Manager Mike Gillis confirmed that a pair of his players will start the season on injured reserve and miss the opening of the 2010-11 NHL season.

Defenceman Sami Salo suffered a torn Achilles tendon injury earlier this summer while playing floorball in his native Finland. The 35 year-old will be out of action for at least the next four-to-six months.
