Russian Rocket out of World Cup
VANCOUVER (CP) -- The Russian Rocket has been grounded. Again.
Pavel Bure of the Vancouver Canucks will not play in the World Cup hockey tournament after suffering another injury.
This time it's a contusion on his kidney suffered last Friday in Detroit when Bure played for Russia against the United States in an exhibition game.
The Canucks announced Monday that their star forward will be sidelined at least two weeks.
Bure was examined by team doctor Ross Davidson, the surgeon who operated on Bure's injured knee last November after he was hurt in Chicago.
The fast-skating Bure played only 15 games last NHL season after being checked to the ice by rugged defender Steve Smith of the Blackhawks.
He was scheduled to make his return to GM Place on Thursday in the World Cup tournament opener for Russia against Canada.
The Canucks said in a news release that Davidson advised Bure not to play in the tournament. Bure will remain in Vancouver and be re-evaluated by team doctors before the team's NHL training camp begins Sept. 8.
Bure was not available to comment on his latest setback that came when he was checked by American defenceman Brian Leetch of the New York Rangers.
The two-time 60-goal scorer in the NHL played three exhibition games for Russia in preparation for the World Cup, apparently without experiencing any major problem with his repaired knee.
Bure, 25, has scored 180 goals in 283 NHL games.
He was to be re-united in the World Cup with former Russian linemates Sergei Fedorov of the Detroit Red Wings and current teammate Alexander Mogilny.
