Canucks’ Malhotra out rest of season

Vancouver Canucks center Manny Malhotra will miss the rest of

the season.

The 32-year-old Malhotra, placed on injured reserve, had no

points in nine games this season.

There was no reason given for the move, but Canucks President

Mike Gillis said the club’s main concern is Malhotra’s long-term

health. In March 2011, he sustained a serious eye injury when

struck by a puck.

Malhotra has 108 goals and 170 assists in 864 career games in 14

seasons with the New York Rangers, Dallas, Columbus, San Jose and

Vancouver.
