Baertschi has opted out of the NHL's Return to Play Program.

Baertschi has been seeking a trade for the majority of the 2019-20 season after spending most of the season posting over point-per-game numbers in the AHL. Baertschi was invited to training camp, which starts Monday but will stay home and be replaced by Kole Lind on the roster. Baertschi joins Flames' defenseman Travis Hamonic as the second player to opt-out of the NHL playoffs.

The Canucks have recalled Sven Baertschi from Utica (AHL).

Baertschi was a surprise training camp casualty but has unsurprisingly dominated the AHL since then, tying for 10th in the league in points with 10 (2G / 8A) in just seven games. Micheal Ferland suffered an upper-body injury in a fight with Kyle Clifford on Wednesday, so look for Baertschi to take his spot in the lineup on Friday.

The Canucks announced on Monday that Baertschi will miss at least one month with a fractured jaw. The Canucks are without two-thirds of their top line with Baertschi joins Bo Horvat on the shelf.

Baertschi, 23, spent the entire 2015-16 season with the Canucks, totalling 15 goals and 13 assists (28 points) in 69 games. He struggled to gain traction in the Flames organization, but seems to have found his stride in Vancouver, earning him $1.85 million per season for the next two years.
