Vancouver Canucks defenceman Rory Fitzpatrick sidelined by broken foot

Sami Salo (knee sprain) and Willie Mitchell (post-concussion symptoms) also are sidelined, leaving Vancouver with a young, inexperienced defence corps.

Nathan McIver, 21, was recalled for Manitoba of the American Hockey League and will join Patrick Coloumbe, another 21-year-old who was called up Wednesday, in playing his first NHL game. Alexander Edler, 20, will be playing his third.
