Dan Hamhuis (lower body) isn't traveling with the Vancouver Canucks.

That means that Hamhuis won't play in Dallas on Thursday or Arizona on Friday. Vancouver has called up Alex Biega to help deal with Hamhuis' absence. Hamhuis is still being evaluated so it's not clear how long he'll be sidelined for.

Dan Hamhuis will be held out of Tuesday's tilt with Montreal with a lower body injury.

Coach Desjardins noted that Hamhuis could go if he needed to, but "he's a little banged up" so the veteran blue liner will get the night off. Through eight games, Hamhuis has a pair of points, eight blocks, and 15 hits while averaging 19:15 a night.

Dan Hamhuis is looking for his fourth medal at the World Championships.

Hamhuis has had a storied international career that was capped by winning Gold at the 2014 Olympics. He also won Gold at the 2007 Worlds and will try to make it a double this year as Canada has reached the semi-finals for the first time in six years. "I think talent-wise, our 2008 team was one of the best, but this year’s team is right up there as well," Hamhuis said. "This is one of the closer teams I’ve been on at world championships. We’re the second youngest team at the tournament and have scored the most goals, so there was lots going well for us through the round robin. We’ve got a great coach in Todd McLellan and the whole staff, and he’s given us a similar game plan to the Olympics where we were going to play good defense and check our way to wins rather than just trying to outscore the other teams. We’ve scored a lot of goals, but it has come from playing good defense."
