VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) - Mason Raymond missed his planned return to the Vancouver Canucks lineup on Thursday because of an issue with paperwork.

Raymond has already missed 24 games this season because of a back injury sustained in last season's playoffs.

"Paperwork with the league," was all a team spokesman would say when the Raymond didn't take the pregame skate before the Canucks played Nashville on Thursday night.

Raymond sustained a vertebrae compression fracture on June 13 when he was sent backward into the boards on a hit by Boston's Johnny Boychuck in Game 6 of the Stanley Cup finals.
