VANCOUVER - Vancouver Canucks forward Mikael Samuelsson will likely miss at least a week of action due to a concussion.

Samuelsson was hurt during Sunday's loss to the St. Louis Blues, when Blues forward Vladimir Sobotka used his shoulder to make contact with Samuelsson's head, according to the Vancouver Sun.

The paper also revealed that, although Samuelsson felt well enough to visit with friends after the 3-2 loss, head coach Alain Vigneault said the Swedish winger had a mild concussion and will miss at least a week per NHL protocol regarding head injuries.

Samuelsson, in his second season with the Canucks, has six goals and 17 points in 25 games thus far this year.

Vancouver hosts the Anaheim Ducks on Wednesday.
