Vancouver Canucks forward Radim Vrbata has left Friday’s game against the Edmonton Oilers with a lower-body injury and will not return.

Vrbata got tangled with Oilers forward Jordan Eberle in the third period Saturday, and limped off the ice.

The pending unrestricted free agent has 13 goals and 14 assists in 62 games this year, a significant drop in production from the 31 goals and 32 assists he put up in the 2014-15 season.
