    Allen has a sore shoulder

     KAMLOOPS, B.C. (CP) -- Canucks prospect Bryan Allen has been the human hospital ward the last 12 months, with two knee injuries, a shoulder ailment and a broken foot.
     He missed most of last year's training camp and all of this summer's July rookie camp. So when the gangly six-foot-five defenceman made it through his first full training camp scrimmage this week, it seemed an accomplishment in itself.
     But then head coach Marc Crawford delivered the bad news. The reason Allen didn't distinguish himself on the ice was due to a shoulder injury.
     Allen, however, claimed he was okay.
     "It's fine, it's no big deal at all ...," he told the Vancouver Sun. "I just kind of bumped the shoulder, but I didn't miss any shifts. I've had enough injuries for now. I've had my fill."
     The Canucks' first pick in 1998 (fourth overall), the 19-year-old is expected to make the final roster as he cannot be sent to the minors due to his age. Vancouver management felt he was ready a year ago so there seems no reason why the team won't carry him now, especially with the trading away of Bryan McCabe. The absence of unsigned blueliners Ed Jovanovski and Adrian Aucoin, however long they stay out, further opens the door for Allen.
