Ferland has left the Western Conference bubble in Edmonton and returned home, the Canucks added. He will be re-evaluated following the series, which is currently tied 1-1.
The Canucks did not provide specifics regarding Ferland's current ailment, but he logged just 2:36 of ice time in Game 2 after playing 11:41 in the series opener.
Concussion issues limited Ferland to only 14 regular-season games before he returned to the lineup for the postseason.
Ferland signed a four-year, $14-million contract with Vancouver last offseason. The 28-year-old has racked up 134 points in 335 career games through six NHL seasons.
