Ferland has returned home, according to the Canucks, and will be reassessed after the series.
News of Ferland’s designation comes shortly after Sportsnet’s Elliotte Friedman announced he would be leaving the NHL central venue due to injury.
No details on the nature of his injury have emerged yet.
Ferland only played four shifts, totaling 2:36 of ice time in the Canucks’ Game 2 victory over the Minnesota Wild.
In Game 1 of the series, the forward was fined $ 5,000 by the NHL for harpooning Ryan Hartman on the Wild Bench.
The 28-year-old is yet to register a point in the Canucks’ qualifying series. In the regular season, he scored one goal and added four assists in 14 games.
The Canucks and Wild are tied 1-1 in their best series of five.
