Micheal Ferland was placed on injured reserve by the Vancouver Canucks on Friday because of an upper-body injury.

The forward did not play after leaving the game following a fight with Los Angeles Kings forward Kyle Clifford in the first period of a 5-3 win on Wednesday.

Ferland, who signed a four-year contract with the Canucks as an unrestricted free agent on July 1, has five points (one goal, four assists) in 12 games this season. Selected by the Calgary Flames in the fifth round (No. 133) of the 2010 NHL Draft, Ferland has 134 points (60 goals, 74 assists) in 333 regular-season games and six points (three goals, three assists) in 20 Stanley Cup Playoff games.

The Canucks recalled forward Sven Baertschi from Utica of the American Hockey League. He has 10 points (two goals, eight assists) in seven games with Utica this season and had 14 points (nine goals, five assists) in 26 games with Vancouver last season.

The Canucks (8-3-1) visit the Anaheim Ducks on Friday (10 p.m. ET, PRIME, SNP, NHL.TV).
