Larsen (upper body) is no longer listed on IR, per the NHL's official media site. It's been 23 games since Larsen sustained that upper-body ailment, and NHL.com projects that he'll sit this next one out, despite being activated. The Canucks will go right back to work Thursday for a contest against the Coyotes in Arizona, so there's still a chance that Larsen factors into a match ahead of the All-Star break. Hopefully No. 63 can stay on the ice for a sustained period of time, as he has the potential to mature into a fine two-way defenseman -- plus, he's averaging 3:07 of power-play ice time this season.
Larsen is on injured reserve with an upper-body injury, TSN reports. Larsen required an overnight stay at a hospital, having been stretchered off the ice in Tuesday's away game against the Devils. The defender is eligible to return Dec. 16 against the Lightning, but time will tell whether he'll be healthy enough to go on that date.
Larsen (undisclosed) stayed overnight at a hospital after leaving Tuesday's matchup with New Jersey on a stretcher, John Shannon of Sportsnet reports. Larsen will head back to Vancouver to be further evaluated by team doctors which effectively rules him out of Thursday's away game against Tampa Bay. Unless the blueliner is able to rejoin the team's road trip, he could be out of the lineup until at least Dec. 16 when they are at home against the Lightning.
Larsen left Tuesday's game against the Devils on a stretcher and will not return, Dan Murphy of Sportsnet reports. Larsen was hit hard along the boards by Taylor Hall early in the road contest. He lay unconscious on the ice before leaving the ice on a stretcher and being taken to the hospital. The Canucks will likely release more information on the 26-year-old blue liner's status after he undergoes medical evaluation. Until further notice, his status for the team's upcoming matchup Thursday against the Lightning is questionable.
Larsen (illness) will be in the lineup against the Wild on Tuesday. Larsen was sidelined for the Canucks' last nine outings with an undisclosed illness, but will be back in action. The 26-year-old's return comes just in the nick of time as fellow blueliner Alexander Edler (finger) is expected to miss 4-to-6 weeks. Larsen has four assists on the year, two of which have come on the power play, but is a minus-8 which should be a red flag for fantasy owners.
