Dan Hamhuis Injury: Canucks Defenseman Leaves Game 1, Listed As Day-To-Day

The Vancouver Canucks may have won Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final, but it wasn't all perfect. Defenseman Dan Hamhuis delivered a hit on Milan Lucic near the Boston Bruins bench, which sent Lucic head-over-heels in movie-like fashion.

Unfortunately for the Canucks, Hamhuis apparently got the worst of it. He gingerly skated off the ice following the hit and never returned in the latter 36 minutes of Game 1.

After the game, Canucks head coach Alain Vigneault said that Hamhuis is listed as day-to-day. Everybody is day-to-day in the playoffs, but whatever.

"Obviously, you know, going down to five D midway through the second, with the intensity that was out there, was obviously taxing on our group," Vigneault said. "But I thought our forwards did a good job of helping our defense out. I thought the five guys that handled the workload did a real good job of sharing the time. I thought our best period was our third period. We were down to five D at that time."

We'll hopefully learn more about Hamhuis' status later on Thursday.
