The Vancouver Canucks will be without Alex Burrows for the long term, as the forward suffered a broken jaw during the team's 3-2 win over Carolina on Sunday.

Burrows suffered the injury after getting hit in the jaw with a puck on a clearing attempt by teammate Chris Tanev.

Burrows played out the rest of the game and even did post-game interviews in the dressing room after the final horn.

According to Bob Marjanovich of Vancouver's TEAM 1040, Burrows requires surgery and is out of the lineup indefinitely. In 17 games this season, Burrows - who has also missed 12 games this season with a bruised foot - has three assists.
