Vancouver Canucks forward Sven Baertschi may miss the rest of the 2017-18 season due to a separated shoulder, according to head coach Travis Green.

Baertschi was forced from his club’s game on Friday night after appearing to collide with Nashville Predators defender Alexei Emelin.

Through 53 games this season, his third campaign with Vancouver, the 25-year-old has 14 goals and 29 points to his name.
