The injury makes Jannik Hansen unavailable to play for the Danish national team in the world championships. He's expected to be full recovered within a month, so there shouldn't be any lingering issues with this injury heading into the 2013-14 season. (Updated 5/10/13).
Jannik Hansen set career-high marks for the second consecutive season while bouncing between lines. He finished with 16 goals, 23 assists and a plus-18 rating in nearly 15 minutes per-game. The Canucks rolled out Hansen in nearly every role imaginable for a winger last season, even giving him some time with the Sedin Twins on the top line early in the season. Hell likely settle into a second or third-line role with the team in 2012-13, giving him an opportunity to repeat his steady performance from last season. (Updated 8/14/12)
