VANCOUVER - Vancouver Canucks forward Daniel Sedin was taken off the ice on a stretcher late in the second period of Sunday night's regular-season finale against the Calgary Flames after taking a hit from behind.

Sedin crumpled to the ice after getting hit in the numbers by Calgary's Paul Byron in the Vancouver zone with 2:44 left in the period.

The Canucks' trainer rushed to Sedin's side and immediately signalled for a stretcher.

Sedin, who appeared to be moving his fingers on a television replay, was fitted with a neck brace and placed on a backboard.

Byron was assessed a five-minute penalty for boarding and a game misconduct.

Sedin scored two goals in the first period to give him 16 on the season.
