Raymond suffered vertebrae compression fracture
Vancouver Canucks forward Mason Raymond sustained a vertebrae compression fracture in the first period of Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Final on Monday and is expected to miss 3-4 months, President and General Manager Mike Gillis announced Tuesday.

Raymond suffered the injury on the game's first shift, when he got tangled with Bruins defenseman Johnny Boychuk. Raymond was bent at the waist when he fell back-side first into the boards.

Raymond stayed down on the ice for several minutes before being helped off the ice. It was reported during the game that he was taken to a hospital on a stretcher for further evaluation.

Raymond doesn't have a point in the series and has just 2 goals and 6 assists in 24 playoff games, but had been skating on the Canucks' second line, with Ryan Kesler and Chris Higgins. Jannik Hansen replaced him in Game 6.

Quote of the Day

I think when you build a team, you look at pairs, and I think the pair of [Voracek and Giroux] is very good, certainly one of the top pairs in the League.
