Sutter (shoulder) will play for the first time since October 29th.

Sutter missed two months of action with a shoulder injury but will replace Josh Leivo (back spasms) in the lineup on Thursday. Sutter will likely return in a support role, serving as the team’s third-line centre behind Elias Pettersson and Bo Horvat. Sutter had just three goals and one assist in 13 games earlier this year.

Sutter is expected to miss 4-6 weeks with a separated shoulder.

Sutter was forced to leave Monday’s game vs. the Wild after suffering a separated shoulder after contact with Matt Dumba. Sutter has had a rough start to the season, picking up just three goals and one assist (four points) in 13 games. This leaves the Canucks without their shutdown centre. Sutter has started 73.1 percent of his zone-starts in the D-zone, but he has been getting caved in with a 39.8 CorsiFor% and -6.3 CF% rel.

Sutter (sports hernia) is expected to return to the Canucks lineup on Tuesday.

Sutter has been sidelined since November 10th, but is expected to play on Tuesday. Sutter skated on the top line between Daniel Sedin and Jannik Hansen at Monday’s practice, so not only will he return, but he will return as the first line centre. Before getting hurt, Sutter had eight points (4G / 4A) in 16 games.
