    Messier suffers knee injury

     VANCOUVER (CP) -- Vancouver Canucks captain Mark Messier suffered a knee injury one minute into Tuesday night's game against the San Jose Sharks.
     
     Swearing and throwing his helmet down in frustration, Messier -- unable to put any weight on his right knee -- required help off the ice and went straight to the Canucks' dressing room.
     
     Later in the first period, a Canucks official announced that Messier would not return, but didn't say how serious the injury was.
     
     Messier, 38, was hurt on his first shift of the game when he headed to the front of the Sharks' net as teammate Peter Schaefer was attempting a wraparound play.
     
     Sharks defenceman Andy Sutton grabbed Messier from behind and pulled him down. The two fell to the ice with Messier's right leg tangled between Sutton's.
     
     Messier stayed on the ice, on hands and knees, for a couple minutes before he was helped off the ice, able to skate only on his left foot.
     
     Last season, Messier missed 18 games with a sprained left knee.
     
     He has five goals and seven assists this season.
