Vancouver Canucks captain Bo Horvat will miss at least the next two weeks, the team announced Friday.

Horvat will be re-evaluated at the end of the month for the lower-body injury he suffered vs. the Arizona Coyotes on Thursday night. He took a slap shot off his leg and did not return.

Nils Hoglander will also be out indefinitely after undergoing surgery to repair a core muscle/groin injury. There’s no timeline for his return.

The Canucks’ regular season is set to end on April 29 with seven games remaining on their schedule. The club is clinging to playoff hopes, sitting in fifth place in the Pacific Division.

Horvat has 31 goals and 21 assists in 70 games this season.

Hoglander has 10 goals and eight assists in 60 games this year. He’s been out of the lineup since March 15.
