The Vancouver Canucks will be without David Booth for 4-6 weeks after the forward was found to have an MCL injury in his right knee.

Booth suffered the injury in Tuesday's win over the Colorado Avalanche, when he was hit knee-on-knee by Kevin Porter. Porter received a five-minute major penalty and a game misconduct on the play, and will have a hearing with NHL disciplinarian Brendan Shanahan on Thursday.

Booth had to be assisted to the locker room and did not return.

The Canucks announced the injury to Booth on Wednesday night, as the team prepared to embark on a five-game east coast trip that starts Thursday in Montreal.

Booth was acquired by the Canucks in a four-player swap with the Florida Panthers in October. He has five goals and 12 points in 19 games since being dealt to Vancouver.
