VANCOUVER -- Vancouver Canucks forward Daniel Sedin was taken off the ice on a stretcher after an awkward hit into the side boards late in the second period against the Calgary Flames on Sunday night.

Sedin's head hit the glass after he was hit from behind by Flames forward Paul Byron, and he never got up on the ice. Sedin was moving his fingers but nothing else as medical trainer Mike Burnstein came off the bench and quickly called for a stretcher to take Sedin off the ice.

The Canucks said Sedin was taken "in stable condition to Vancouver General Hospital to undergo further evaluation and imaging. He exhibited signs of movement to his extremities and showed improvement from initially being hit. No assessment will be made until completion of this evaluation."

NEWARK, N.J. -- Peter DeBoer will return to coach the New Jersey Devils next season, general manager Lou Lamoriello said Sunday.

Lamoriello spoke with reporters after the first period of the team's season finale against the Boston Bruins, a 3-2 victory at Prudential Center. It was an attempt to put to rest any confusion about the immediate future of the coach following multiple reports that indicated the Devils were working on a contract extension with DeBoer.

"There's a lot of rumors going on, a lot of misinformation about our coach, so I thought I'd get really out of character a little and put this to rest," Lamoriello said. "Pete DeBoer is under contract for next year, has been under contract for next year, and will be coaching next year. That's all I have to say. I don't want to get into any other discussions."

Lamoriello would not comment about reports that the Devils and DeBoer are closing in on an extension. He typically does not divulge contract information, length or term. DeBoer also would not comment on the specifics of his contract situation.
