Vancouver Canucks defenceman Sami Salo reportedly has a concussion after he took a low-bridge hit from Brad Marchand during Saturday's game in Boston.

According to the Vancouver Province, Canucks general manager Mike Gillis confirmed the news on Sunday. Marchand was assessed a clipping major and game misconduct for the hit that flipped Salo over in the Boston zone late in the second period.

Play was stopped after the hit, and after a few moments Salo was able to skate off the ice on his own. The blueliner did not return to the game.

The Canucks' Twitter feed reported that Salo awoke with a headache on Sunday and will be monitored.

Marchand will have a conference call hearing with NHL disciplinarian Brendan Shanahan on Monday.

The 23-year-old Marchand has been suspended before. He was given a two-game ban last March for an elbow to the head of Columbus forward R.J. Umberger.

Marchand was also fined $2,500 last month for slew-footing Pittsburgh defenceman Matt Niskanen.

The Canucks earned a spirited 4-3 win over the Bruins on Saturday in the first meeting between the teams since the Stanley Cup Final last year.
