Vancouver Canucks head coach Rick Tocchet told reporters Saturday that defenceman Tyler Myers is week-to-week with a lower-body injury.

Myers was absent from the team's skate Saturday morning and Tocchet provided the update after the session. 

The 34-year-old Myers played 14:19 in Thursday's 5-1 loss to the Los Angeles Kings, logging two blocked shots, two shots on goal and one hit. He has four goals and 23 points in 62 games so far this season, his fifth in Vancouver. 

Mark Friedman, 28, took Myers' spot in the lineup at the team's skate Saturday.

The 29-year-old has two goals and two assists in 21 games so far this season. 

Here were the team's lines Saturday, according to Lalji:
