Alex Burrows Hit In Face With Puck

alex_burrows_2013Vancouver Canucks forward Alex Burrows was struck in the face when teammate Chris Tanev attempted to clear the puck midway through the second period of their 3-2 victory over the Carolina Hurricanes on Sunday.

Burrows played in the third period, but it was later revealed that he suffered a broken jaw, based on a report from TEAM 1040 and verified by TSN’s Bob McKenzie and Sportsnet’s Dan Murphy.

Alex Burrows only has 3 assists and no goals for the Vancouver Canucks in 17 games. He has been a major disappointment for the Canucks this season and is pointless in the last eight games.
