Vancouver Canucks winger Ilya Mikheyev has left training camp for personal reasons, the team said Thursday.

No other information, including how long he will be away, was shared.

Mikheyev had 28 points in 43 games for the Canucks last season but knee surgery in January ended his campaign early.

The 28-year-old joined Vancouver from the Maple Leafs in free agency, agreeing to a four-year, $19-million contract in the summer of 2022.
