Eric O'Dell will not play tonight after spending the last two days away from the team for the birth of his baby girl.
The (27-19-19) Canucks are fourth in the Pacific Division with 63 points.
The arrival of Vancouver now means all of the 29 NHL teams have played a regular season game in Winnipeg. Vancouver has six former members of the AHL's Manitoba Moose who will play tonight. They are: Eddie Lack, Alexandre Burrows, Ryan Kesler, Alexander Edler, Jannik Hansen and Jordan Schroeder.
