Bieksa (ankle) is on the ice for the Canucks' morning skate.
Bieksa was unable to put any weight on his leg when he left the ice on Thursday. But he was spotted this morning walking without a limp and his presence at the morning skate suggests that he will be in the lineup tonight. If he is unable to go, Frank Corrado will play.
Bieksa left Thursday's game after suffering an ankle injury in the second period and did not return.
Bieksa was hurt in a collision with Avalanche forward Gabriel Landeskog along the side-boards. He was unable to put any weight on his right leg as he left the ice. There is no report if Bieksa is expected to miss any time, but the Canucks have recalled Frank Corrado, which suggests that he will.
Bieksa (foot) was back at Canucks practice after taking Monday off.
The Canucks get back in action on Wednesday and it is starting to look like Bieksa will be back in the lineup after missing the last five games before the break. Bieksa will be monitored during Wednesday's morning skate and a decision on his availability will be made shortly after.
Bieksa will not travel on the Canucks road-trip because of an undisclosed injury.
The Canucks have a five-game road-trip that leads into the Olympic break and Bieksa will not travel with the team as they head to take on the Jets tomorrow in Winnipeg. Frank Corrado was recalled this morning, he will slide onto the blueline with Bieksa sidelined.
