Canucks Raymond Has Fractured Vertebrae

((HT: NHL on NBC/youtube))

It took all of the first shift in last night's game six for the Vancouver Canucks to have another injury saddle their roster for Wednesday's Game 7...

The Bruins Johnny Boychuk DDT'ed Mason Raymond into the boards during the early stages of last night's game and the early diagnosis is a fractured vertebrae that will keep him out of action from four to six months...

Raymond was on the ice for several minutes before being helped off the ice. He was taken to a local hospital for further evaluation, and there is no word on whether or not Raymond is well or stable enough to travel back to Vancouver at present.

Raymond, who played alongside Ryan Kesler and Chris Higgins on the Canucks' second line, was replaced by Jannik Hansen last night...

More juggling for Alain Vigneault for the new lines... which will be revealed tomorrow morning- and again tomorrow night...

Here's the call from last night...
