Philip Larsen is "awake and responsive", according to the Vancouver Canucks.

Considering how it looked, this is great news. Larsen has been taken to the hospital for further evaluation. We'll keep you posted on his status as it develops.

After receiving a thunderous hit by Taylor Hall, Philip Larsen was stretchered off the ice.

Larsen played just 6:56 before departing. Hopefully the Canucks were just being cautious, and the next report will be that he's okay. But it did look like Larsen took Hall's shoulder flush to the jaw. Check out the highlight below. We'll keep you posted as his status develops.

Derek Dorsett, who will undergo cervical fusion surgery due to disc degeneration in his neck, has been dealing with this issue for five or six years.

So if you're looking for a silver lining, maybe Dorsett will be feeling better than he has in a long time should he make a full recovery as the Canucks expect him to do. That being said, it's not yet known how long it will take him to recover from this procedure. He's in the second season of a four-year, $10.6 million deal.
Dec 5 - 4:34 PM

Derek Dorsett is scheduled to undergo cervical fusion surgery.

Dorsett has disc degeneration in his neck and this surgery will address that. It's expected that he'll be able to make a full recovery, but what's not clear is how long it will take him to get back to the point where he can play. Vancouver isn't providing a timetable, citing the nature of the procedure as the reason for that. "The decision to perform surgery was made after a thorough review of our options, including non-surgical treatment and rehabilitation," said Canucks GM Jim Benning. "Derek, our Canucks medical team and Dr. Watkins believe that surgery offers the best outcome both for his career and long-term health. Derek is an important member of our team and we are optimistic for a full recovery."

Jake Virtanen scored his first goal in the AHL this season on the weekend.

Virtanen was sent to the minors on November 16 and started the game on the fourth line so he has not been impressive at all. He has three points in 10 games with Utica and it looks like it could be a while if at all this season, that he returns to the Canucks. He may need a change of scenery to get his career back in gear.

According to reports, Jannik Hansen (fractured ribs) looked quite good at practice Friday.

Hansen fractured his ribs on November 5 from a hit by Toronto's Morgan Rielly and was expected to miss four-six weeks. We've hit the four week mark and it looks like he is ready to return any day. He has six points in 12 games and has played exceptionally well with the Sedin twins in the last couple of seasons.
