Vancouver Canucks defenseman Luca Sbisa left Saturday's 4-1 loss to the San Jose Sharks with what the team terms a "stomach flu" and did not return.

Any Canucks player with even mild symptoms of an illness raise an alarm considering the mumps outbreak hitting this team. Obviously the team didn't confirm anything with Sbisa here, but we'll have to see. For what it's worth, the team is denying it is the mumps, according to TSN's Farhan Lalji.

Luca Sbisa (hand) had five hits in his return to the Canucks' lineup on Sunday.

Sbisa also logged 19:33 minutes of ice time to help Vancouver earn a 2-1 shootout victory over the New York Islanders. It was his first game since Dec. 1. "That was definitely a battle," said Sbisa. "But it’s good to have one like this the first game back and have everything you could ask for. The shots were lopsided (48-26) but we battled and I felt better as the game wore on. The first two (periods), I was gassed. A lot of it had to do with a little anxiety in the first game back. You waste a lot of energy because you’re so excited."

Luca Sbisa (hand) is expected to return to action Sunday.

He has missed the last 19 games with the hand injury. When Sbisa was injured at the start of December it was thought that the injury was short term. It was not. Sbisa had a goal and four points in 18 games before the injury. He has no real fantasy value. He is on the injured reserved list and there will have to be another move made when he is activated.
