Ferland is dealing with recurring concussion-like symptoms and will miss the rest of the season.
Ferland recently left Friday's conditioning game with AHL Utica with concussion-like symptoms, and as evidenced by this news, the setback was serious. The 27-year-old hasn't played in the NHL since Dec. 10 and will finish the season with five points in 14 games. Ferland is a prime candidate for long-term injured reserve, which would clear a roster spot and cap space for newly acquired Tyler Toffoli. Ferland will continue to be evaluated.

The Canucks called the move precautionary. Ferland has been out since Dec. 10 with an upper-body injury. His previous injury was not called a concussion, but it has been severe enough to cost him two months already, and this latest setback suggests more missed time is on the way in the winger's long recovery.

He'll sit out Saturday versus the Flames, but he could be back in the fold Monday versus Nashville.

Ferland hasn't played in a game since Dec. 10 and that was just a two-game span following another month-long absence, so it's not surprising that the club will look to get him in some AHL action before he makes an appearance at the top level. Ferland has racked up five points over 14 contests this season, when available, and he should play a sizable role for Vancouver when healthy.
