Kesler's future cloudy as Ducks visit Canucks

Vancouver Canucks fans will probably not get a chance to boo Ryan Kesler on Tuesday night.

Kesler is expected to remain sidelined with a chronic hip problem as his Anaheim Ducks visit the Canucks in a game between two NHL clubs mainly trying to gain insight on next season. The Ducks center has been persona non grata in Vancouver since he demanded a trade in the summer of 2014, saying he'd waive his no-trade clause only to go to Anaheim or Chicago.

Once loved by Canucks faithful, Kesler has been booed and jeered whenever he returns to Rogers Arena. But it remains to be seen whether he will play another game in Vancouver -- or anywhere else. Ducks general manager and interim coach Bob Murray indicated the club will likely shut him down for the rest of the season, and the 34-year-old's future is uncertain because of his hip woes.
