Defenseman

Vancouver Canucks

Larsen had to be taken off on a stretcher following a hit from Taylor Hall on Tuesday.

Larsen was knocked out after being crushed by Taylor Hall behind the Canucks net and had to be taken off of the ice on a stretcher. Larsen has had a tough return to the NHL, picking up just four assists in 17 games this season. Expect him to miss some time.

Larsen will return to the Oilers blueline Thursday.

Tonight will be just Larsen's second game with the Oilers since December 19. The Oilers traded Nick Schultz to the Blue Jackets on Wednesday, the deal freed up a spot on the back-end for Larsen to be recalled. He has averaged 20:37 TOI with a goal and five assists in 17 games. He will likely find himself in on the top-pair with Justin Schultz.

Larsen (undisclosed) missed practice this morning and is questionable for Tuesday.

It might have been a maintenance day for Larsen after a back-to-back on Saturday and Sunday. However if he and Justin Schultz can't go on Tuesday, the Oilers will have to recall someone from Oklahoma City. Larsen has made a splash since arriving in Edmonton in early November. He has one goal and four assists in eight games, but like a lot of Oilers he is an ugly minus-6.

Defenseman Philip Larsen (concussion) went through a full practice today. He hasn't been cleared to play yet, but that could come after today's practice. If he does get cleared he'd be available for tomorrow's game against Tampa Bay, but the Stars may use him Saturday in Minnesota to get some fresh legs into the lineup.

Prior to getting hurt, Larsen was a rather serviceable defenseman for the Stars. In 19 games he only registered two assists but was lauded for staying with the play. Expect him to spell a wounded d-man when he becomes available.
