UNIONDALE, N.Y. -- Vancouver Canucks forward Jannik Hansen was forced to leave during the first period of a game Tuesday night against the New York Islanders following a collision with defenseman Brian Strait. He did not return.

Hansen crashed into the boards while chasing a loose puck behind the Islanders' net. He quickly headed to the Canucks' dressing room at Nassau Coliseum, leaving Vancouver with 10 forwards for the rest of the game.

Hansen entered Tuesday with two goals and one assist in 10 games.

I've been getting frustrated lately, and the only thing keeping me sane was the team winning and other people stepping up and scoring. Then you just kind of let it go and realize you can end the series with one shot, that frustration goes away for a brief moment, and that's what happened.
