Vancouver Canucks announced that forward Tanner Pearson will need another hand surgery and will miss the remainder of the season. According to Rick Dhaliwal of Donnie and Dhali there's no guarantee that Pearson will be able to play next season due to an infection in his hand.

Here is the quote from Rick Dhaliwal
«Here's what I know on Tanner Pearson,» said Dhaliwal, »November 9th, he suffered a broken hand in Montreal and was supposed to be out four weeks and now it's six months — and that's only if everything goes right it's six months. He had two setbacks. I was told last night some say Pearson has already had three to four surgeries already. He is not done with more work on the hand. Yes, it's possible more surgeries. There also seems to be an infection that is causing problems as well. Could it be career-threatening? We don't know that yet. But I'm told there is no guarantee that Tanner Pearson will be back next season. It is a significant injury.»

After the Canucks' 5-4 loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning last night, defenceman Quinn Hughes said that Pearson's injury
«wasn't handled properly. I feel bad for him. I mean, it wasn't handled properly and you know, it's not really a good situation he's got there and hopefully he's going to be alright,»
Hughes said, according to Postmedia's Patrick Johnston.
The 30-year-old Kitchener, Ontario product has been out since Nov. 9 and has five points (1G, 4A) in 14 games this season. Last season, Pearson registered 14 goals and 34 points in 68 games.
He is signed until the end of the 2023-2024 season with a cap hit $3,250,000 AAV.
