Trade
The Ducks have acquired Ryan Kesler and 2015 third-round pick from the Canucks for Nick Bonino, Luca Sbisa, the 24th overall pick and the 85th overall pick in this year's draft.
Kesler scored 25 goals and 18 assists (43 points) but was a career worst minus-15 in 77 games this season. Kesler has spent his entire 10-year career with the Canucks but will now move the Anaheim where he will likely centre the second line behind Ryan Getzlaf. This trade makes the Ducks a much more difficult team to play against, especially come playoff time. Kesler will turn 30 in August and is signed through the next two seasons at a $5 million dollar cap-hit.

Injury
Kesler (knee) will return to the Canucks lineup Sunday.
Kesler has missed the last four games since injuring his knee on March 12th. Expect Jordan Schroeder to sit with Kesler returning. He should centre the second line as usual and skate with the Sedin's on the first power-play unit.

Injury
Kesler (knee) is on the ice for Canucks practice.
Kesler is skating on a line with his regular linemates Chris Higgins and and Jannik Hansen. He was expected to miss at least a "couple of weeks" and has been out for nine days. Skating on his regular line would suggest that he could be back in the lineup on Sunday. Expect a full update after practice.

Injury
Kesler will miss "at least a couple of weeks" with a sprained knee.
Kesler was injured in a knee-on-knee collision with Jets forward Jim Slater on Wednesday. Kesler could return for the end of the regular season, but he will miss at least two weeks. The Canucks are just four points out of the final playoff spot in the West, but it will be hard for them to get in with their emotional leader on the sideline.

Injury
Kesler will miss the rest of the Vancouver Canucks road trip, heading back to Vancouver to have his knee further evaluated.
Kesler left Wednesday's 3-2 shootout win over the Winnipeg Jets in the second period after a knee-on-knee hit from the Jets' Jim Slater. Kesler was seen wearing a brace after the game and is expected to be out for a while. In 67 games with Vancouver this season the 29-year-old has 22 goals and 18 assists. A tough season is about to get a little more difficult for the Canucks.

Injury
Kesler (hand) will play vs. the Wild.
Kesler was a full participant in Thursday's practice, so his return vs. the Wild was expected. Kesler missed one game with a hand injury, but will return tonight. He has become talks of a potential trade, so tonight could be his last home game as a Canuck. He is expected to centre Vancouver's second line.

Injury
Kesler (hand) practiced with Canucks today and expects to play on Friday.
Kesler missed Wednesday's game with a hand injury that he suffered in Sochi. He participated in practice on Thursday and is probable to play vs. the Wild. Kesler's name has surfaced on the trade market, so Friday could potentially be his last with Vancouver.

Injury
Kesler (hand) will not play tonight, he is listed as day-to-day.
Canucks head coach John Tortorella would not divulge the severity of Kesler's hand injury. When asked about MRI results, he said that Kesler is "day-to-day." Tortorella also said that if "Kesler could play, he would play", which suggests that the hand injury is relatively serious. Consider Kesler questionable for Friday's game as well.

Injury
Kesler will undergo an MRI after injuring his hand in Sochi.
Kesler was injured while blocking a shot by Ilya Kovalchuk on Feb. 15 in Sochi. Kesler was in considerable pain on the bench and briefly left with an ice pack on his hand, but returned in the 3-2 eight-round shootout victory over the Russians. He played in the final three tournament games for Team USA with his right hand bandaged and sporting a splint. The question now is, will he play Wednesday against the St. Louis Blues at Rogers Arena? “He was in this morning and had some work done; we’ll see how he is (Tuesday),” said Canucks coach John Tortorella. “I’m not overly concerned about him missing a couple of days of practice.”
