Burrows is out indefinitely with a broken jaw after being hit with the puck on a Chris Tanev clearing attempt.
Burrows already missed more than three weeks of the season after fracturing his right foot in the season opener Oct. 3 against San Jose when he blocked a Patrick Marleau shot. Burrows, of course, had been playing with the Sedins, so replacing him on that top line will not be an easy choice for coach John Tortorella. Expect it to either be Ryan Kesler or Jannik Hansen.

Head coach John Tortorella split up the twins and Ryan Kesler at practice this morning and moved Burrows up to the top line. This is likely an effort to get Burrows going offensively - he has three assists in nine games. Kesler was also a minus-4 in the last three games so Torts is shaking thing up. This should help Burrows going forward.
Burrows has been out since the season opener, a game he played 18:34 but did not record a point in. His return comes at a perfect time, the Canucks have lost Jannik Hansen, Dale Weise, David Booth and Jordan Schroeder in recent days, leaving them really thin upfront. Burrows will play with Mike Santorerlli and Tom Sestito on the Canucks second line tonight.
Burrows will not play tonght, he is out for a few weeks. The Canucks classified Burrow's absence from practice yesterady as a maintenance day and that he was just banged up. Apparently that was not the case and Burrows will miss some time with an undisclosed injury.
With Zack Kassian who suspended for the first five games of the season as their only extra forward on their roster, the Canucks will dress seven defenseman tonight.
