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.

It's hard to walk into that locker room and look those guys in the eye when they've played -- clearly, that was our best game we've played in the series -- and I thought we deserved a better fate tonight.
