Canucks rookie sensation Quinn Hughes appeared to injure his right ankle on Friday night in a game against the Anaheim Ducks.

Late in the first period of the game at the Honda Center in Anaheim, the Ducks were carrying the puck through the neutral zone and, as Max Comtois moved to dump the puck in to the Canucks’ zone along the side boards, Hughes pivoted to his left.

But in the motion, the toe of his left skate blade appeared to stick in the ice longer than he expected and he stumbled, hitting his left heel with his right foot and turning the left ankle in a very awkward way.

The Ducks had killed one Vancouver defenseman Quinn Hughes , the seventh overall pick in the 2018 NHL Draft, sustained a lower-body injury at 14:56 of the first period and did not return.

He did make his way off under his own power, but went immediately to the dressing room along with athletic therapist Jon Sanderson.

He didn’t return to the game. Canucks general manager Jim Benning indicated during the second period that the move was simply precautionary, though Sanderson and the medical staff would continue to monitor him.

“I think he will be alright for tomorrow,” he said.

The Canucks play the Sharks in San Jose on Saturday night.
