The Vancouver Canucks have placed forward Tyler Motte on the injured reserve.

Defenceman Olli Juolevi, meanwhile, is expected to be recalled from the taxi squad to dress tonight against the Toronto Maple Leafs.

There’s no word yet on what happened to Tyler Motte, or the extent of his injury, but he seemed to be in some discomfort after a failed collision with William Nylander Saturday against the Leafs.
