Stecher left Sunday's game against the Jets with an upper-body injury and did not return.

The 22-year-old rearguard skated just 4:10 before going down with the injury, which is a far cry from his average of 20:16. With 24 points in 65 games, Stecher has been rather productive for a rookie defenseman on an underwherming Canucks squad, so hopefully the ailment doesn't keep him out too long. After all, Vancouver only has seven games remember after Sunday.
