Canucks' Ryan Johnson to miss 1st playoff round
Vancouver Canucks forward Ryan Johnson will miss at least the first round of the NHL playoffs because of a broken foot.
Canucks coach Alain Vigneault said Tuesday the fourth-line center will be sidelined four to six weeks.
Johnson has been limited to 58 games this year. He played for a long stretch midway through the season with injuries to both feet that made walking difficult.
The Canucks have clinched the Northwest Division title and have home-ice advantage in the opening round of the playoffs.
