Grabner to the Moose, Demitra goes home
Micheal Grabner has been sent down to the farm for some conditioning games before making his way back into the Canucks lineup. Grabner has missed 20 games with an ankle injury he suffered playing soccer in a pre-game warmup. Pavol Demitra has gone back to Slovakia to see a back specialist who has treated him in the past, in addition to continuing his rehab with the Canucks medical staff. Demitra is looking at a late December/ early January return, after the back issues he is suffering from affected his range of movement.
