Canucks prospect absolutely destroyed after a hit: The injury report is bad

The Canucks acquired Vitaly Kravstov in a deal with the Rangers last year. In an exchange involving William Lockwood and a 7th-round pick, Patrik Allvin took a gamble that has yet to pay off.

Kravstov was qualified by the Canucks, meaning they'll retain his rights, but the 2018 9th Overall pick chose that he'd be better for his development to the lineup in the KHL. The winger has been lights out thus far, registering 5 points in just as many games.


Things went south in his last game when he was rocked and couldn't finish. We just learned he'd be sidelined for the next four to six weeks.



The 23-year-old only collected 2 points through 16 games with the Nucks, but the team's development has not yet given up on him. Hopefully, this injury doesn't affect his pace, and he comes back with the same energy he's been displayed in this season's debut.
