Finland's Barkov injured in win vs. Norway

by Dan Rosen /

SOCHI -- Finland forward Aleksander Barkov left the game against Norway early in the third period Friday with a lower-body injury and did not return.

Finnish coach Erkka Westerlund had no further update on Barkov's condition when he was asked about it following Finland's 6-1 win at Shayba Arena.

Barkov, an 18-year-old rookie with the Florida Panthers, played two shifts in the third period before leaving with a little less than seven minutes remaining in the game. He had no points, three shots on goal and won seven of nine faceoffs in 18 shifts totaling 15:03 of ice time against Norway.

Finland plays Canada on Sunday (Noon ET, USA, CBC) in the finale of Group B preliminary-round play at the 2014 Sochi Olympics.
