Josh Leivo, left winger on the Vancouver Canucks, won’t hit the ice for two to three months because of a knee injury.

Canucks coach Travis Green told reporters the news Saturday, saying Leivo has a fractured kneecap.

Leivo, who is 26 from Innisfil, Ont., hurt his knee during an overtime win against the Vegas Golden Knights on Thursday. Leivo hit the boards after being shoved by Golden Knights defence player Nick Holden. Holden did not receive a penalty for the hit.

Leivo joined the Canucks last year after being traded from the Toronto Maple Leafs.
