Daniel Sedin left Sunday's game on a stretcher with 2:44 left in the second period after Calgary's Paul Byron hit him hard from behind.
Byron was issued a five-minute major and a game misconduct for the hit.
Sedin and Byron headed into the corner, where Sedin won the battle for the puck, but the hit sent the Canucks winger's head crashing into the glass.He had to have his neck immobilized as he left the ice, but appeared to be talking and alert after the hit.
Sunday's game began well for Sedin, as he scored two first period goals, including one on the power play. He finished the 2013-14 regular season with 47 points, including 16 goals, after missing some time due to injury issues..
