The Russian winger suffered a season-ending injury earlier during the season and when the Canucks felt that they weren't playing for a playoff spot anymore, they shut him down.

It's an ACL surgery that had the best of him, but his agent, Dan Milstein, gave a positive update earlier during the week. For the first time in a while, a Canucks' injured player did not suffer a setback and according to the timeline that was previously set for him, everything is on track.

The expectation at this point is that he'll be skating in August and ready to go for training camp:

His return will be crucial for the Canucks since he was a part of one of the most lethal 5 on 5 lines in the NHL when lined up with Elias Pettersson and Andrei Kuzmenko. The left-winger inked a four year-deal during the Summer of 2022, in his first season with Canucks he was out for 46 games in which he collected 28 points.
