via the CP at TSN,

Canucks forward Derek Dorsett left the game a few minutes earlier with an upper-body injury after taking a hit from Ryan Kesler and did not return. Replays appeared to show that Kesler, who was dealt from Vancouver to Anaheim in the off-season, made contact with Dorsett's head on the play.

"I haven't seen it yet. All I know is I was going for the puck and I felt him hit," said Kesler. "I hope he's all right, it's unfortunate, it's a fast game out there. I was just going for the puck, trying to make a hockey play."

from Jason Botchford of the Vancouver Province who refers to Kesler as "The Tool"...

... the tool got one over on the Canucks Tuesday and did it on a couple of fronts.

With a clear headshot, complete with an elbow follow-through, Kesler knocked Derek Dorsett out of the game. The Canucks lost their scrappy, energizing bulldog who on many nights has been their only physical, impact player.
