After getting a sweet goal in the shootout in Boston, Demitra has left the Canucks in Tampa Bay to fly back to Vancouver. He is said to have a "personal matter" that he had to take care of in Vancouver, so he left team today. No word yet on what the matter is or whether he will rejoin the Canucks for their remaining 4 games in their roadtrip.

Bernier is expected to fill Demitra's spot in the line-up tomorrow night against the Lightning. Jannik Hansen has also been called up from Manitoba after completing his two-week conditioning stint.
