Vancouver forward Ryan Johnson was taken off the ice on a stretcher after crashing into the end boards early in the second period of the Canucks' game against Detroit on Tuesday night.

FSN Detroit and Rogers SportsNet reported that Johnson was taken to a hospital as a precautionary measure, but that he had movement in his extremities.

With just under three minutes gone in the period, Johnson raced into the Detroit zone, swerved past defenseman Nicklas Lidstrom but lost his balance and crashed into the boards head-first.

Medical personnel put Johnson onto a stretcher and he was wheeled off the ice.
