Canucks forward Tom Sestito has sustained a hip flexor injury at today's Canucks practice in Columbus.
Associate Coach Rick Bowness announced the injury after practice, stating the big winger caught a rut in the ice and tweaked his hip...leaving the practice early.
It is unclear if Sestito will be available for Vancouver's next game in Minnesota on Sunday.
Also in question for the game, Keith Ballard, who continues to recover from a Charley Horse suffered in the loss to San Jose on Tuesday and Kevin Bieksa, who has struggled with a groin issue on and off for the past few weeks.
All players will be evaluated tomorrow at practice in Minnesota to determine their availability for Sunday's game.
