VANCOUVER, B.C. - The Vancouver Canucks have sent forward Sergei Shirokov to the American Hockey League's Manitoba Moose.
The 23-year-old Russian appeared in his first three NHL games over the last week and didn't register a point.
Shirokov led the team in scoring during the pre-season with seven points.
A sixth round pick of the Canucks in 2006, Shirokov spent the past four seasons with CSKA Moscow.
