Montreal Canadiens defenceman P.K. Subban suffered a lower body injury playing for Canada in a pre-tournament tune-up game against Switzerland on Sunday ahead of the World Championship, but said after the game it wasn't serious.

Subban left the game a few minutes after colliding with Swiss defenceman Luca Sbisa midway through the first period.

Post game, the 22-year-old said the trainers kept him out for precautionary reasons and that the injury was "something new," indicating it had nothing to do with the back problems he had throughout the regular season with Montreal this year.

Canada head coach Brent Sutter says Subban will be re-evaluated on Monday and may just rest the next couple of days.

Canada won the game 2-1 in a shootout, with Jordan Eberle scoring the lone shootout goal.
