The Canucks announced Tuesday that forward Mason Raymond [1] sustained a vertebrae compression fracture in his first-period collision with Bruins defenseman Johnny Boychuk [2] in Game 6 of the Stanley Cup [3] finals and will be out for three to four months.

Raymond remained on his stomach after the play and was taken to the hospital. He had no points and was a minus-3 in the finals vs. Boston and finished the playoffs with two goals and six assists for eight points and a minus-1 rating.

With Raymond out, forward Jeff Tambellini should return to the lineup after sitting the last three games in favor of Tanner Glass [4].
