Analysis: Doctors have recommended he not return to the ice because of "long-term, significant health risks" associated with a cervical disk herniation, the Canucks said Thursday. Dorsett was shut down 14 games into the 2016-17 season when the numbness he often felt after delivering or receiving a hit became progressively worse. In 515 NHL games with Vancouver, the New York Rangers and Columbus, Dorsett had 51 goals and 76 assists.
