Vancouver Canucks phenom Elias Pettersson left Saturday's game after Florida Panthers defenseman Mike Matheson hit him against the boards and slammed him to the ice.

Pettersson, who scored his fifth goal in as many games earlier in the contest, played only two shifts in the third period and didn't return for the remaining 16 minutes of the final frame.

Canucks head coach Travis Green did not have an update on his star rookie when asked about him postgame.
