Canucks jumped line for vaccine

November 20, 2009

British Columbia's provincial health officer says members of the Canucks jumped the queue when they received their H1N1 vaccinations earlier this week.

"If they got the vaccine and they weren't in any of the risk groups as individuals then they were queue-jumping," Dr. Perry Kendall told the Canadian Press.

"I don't know why they queue-jumped because they only had to wait a few days."

Two members of the Alberta Health Services were fired last month after members of the Flames and their families were given the vaccine ahead of the general public.

•The Hurricanes have placed goalie Cam Ward and All-Star center Eric Staal on the injured list.

The team said on Thursday that Ward was put on the long-term injured list, while Staal was placed on injured list.

Ward has been out nearly two weeks since his leg was sliced by a skate. Staal has been out since Nov. 1 with an upper body injury.

•The Blue Jackets have activated forward Raffi Torres off injured reserve. Torres, who broke a bone in his face against the Red Wings on Nov. 11, has eight goals and an assist in 17 games this season.
