Breakout Vancouver Canucks rookie Elias Pettersson exited Thursday night's 2-0 loss to the Montreal Canadiens and did not return.

Pettersson suffered a lower-body injury in the second period when he got tangled with Canadiens center Jesperi Kotkaniemi and fell, but he was able to skate off.

The injury came one day after he was named an NHL All-Star and completed a hat trick in overtime to lift the Canucks over the Ottawa Senators.

The 20-year-old center has 22 goals, including seven game-winners, and 20 assists this season.
