Vancouver Whitecaps forward Lucas Cavallini will miss the next six weeks after injuring his left knee Sunday against the Los Angeles Galaxy.

Cavallini’s injury is a grade two-plus sprain of his posterior cruciate ligament.

Cavallini, 28, signed with Vancouver in December 2019 for a club-record transfer fee and is on a designated player contract.

He has nine goals and one assist over 30 games (27 starts) in his two seasons with the Whitecaps, including three goals in 12 games this season.

Cavallini is also a key part of the Canadian national team, and played in four of its five games during the Gold Cup.

The team is hopeful that Cavallini will be able to return by the end of next month.
