According to Vancouver Canucks head coach Travis Green, Elias Pettersson has a slight sprain in his MCL.

Pettersson suffered the injury in Thursday's game against the Montreal Canadiens after he got tangled up with Habs rookie Jesperi Kotkaniemi and fell to the ice. He left the game and didn't return. 

Pettersson had an MRI on Saturday in Toronto and didn't play against the Maple Leafs. 

Without Pettersson in the lineup against the Leafs on Saturday, the Canucks lost 5-0.

In 38 games this season, the 20-year-old has 42 points (22 goals, 20 assists). 

The Canucks next play on Thursday at home against the Arizona Coyotes.
