Vancouver Canucks rookie defenceman Troy Stecher left Sunday's game against the Winnipeg Jets with an upper-body injury and did not return.

According to TSN's Farhan Lalji, head coach Willie Desjardins suggested the injury could be serious after the game, but did not give a timetable for how long he would be out.

The 22-year-old has three goals and 21 assists over 64 games in Vancouver this season.
