Video: Sven Baertschi suffers concussion, won’t return because of this hit

The Vancouver Canucks lost a key forward as they began a do-or-die road trip against the Nashville Predators, as Sven Baertschi won’t return to Tuesday’s game after suffering a concussion.

(Somewhat unusually, the Canucks specifically labeled it a concussion rather than an “upper-body injury.”)

Baertschi suffered the injury thanks to a check by Predators forward Cody McLeod, a play that did not draw a penalty.

Today already ranks as a tough day for the Canucks health-wise, as news surfaced that Anton Rodin underwent knee surgery.
