Injured Arvedson sent back to Vancouver

VANCOUVER, British Columbia -- The Vancouver Canucks
recalled forwards Jason King and Tyler Bouck from Manitoba of the
American Hockey League on Sunday.

Both players were expected to join the team in New York for
games against the Rangers on Monday, Islanders on Tuesday, and New
Jersey Devils on Thursday.

Also, the Canucks sent forward Magnus Arvedson back to Vancouver
after he injured his right knee during Saturday in Washington.
Arvedson had seven goals in his last seven games.

King, 22, was the NHL's rookie of the month for November, and
had 11 goals and five assists in the first two months of the
season. He was sent down Wednesday after failing to score a goal in
21 games, but scored in two straight games with Manitoba.

Bouck, 23, was pointless in five games with Vancouver in
mid-January. He has 10 goals and 21 points for Manitoba.
