Baertschi likely to miss remainder of season for Canucks

Forward separated right shoulder in loss to Predators @NHLdotcom

Vancouver Canucks forward Sven Baertschi has a separated shoulder and is likely to miss the rest of the season, coach Travis Green said Sunday.

Baertschi was injured when he collided with Nashville Predators defenseman Alexei Emelin in the second period of a 4-3 overtime loss at Rogers Arena on Friday.

Tweet from @Canucks: Baertschi has a separated shoulder and is most likely done for the year, confirms Coach Green.

The 25-year-old forward has 29 points (14 goals, 15 assists) in 53 games this season. He missed 11 games with a broken jaw when he was hit by a clearing attempt from Calgary Flames defenseman Mark Giordano on Dec. 9.

The Canucks (24-32-9) entered Sunday 19 points behind the final playoff berth in the Western Conference. They host the New York Islanders on Monday (10 p.m. ET; SNP, MSG+, NHL.TV).
