SOCHI, Russia - Canadian forward John Tavares will miss the rest of the Olympic men's hockey tournament with a leg injury.

The New York Islanders captain was taken into the boards by Arturs Kulda in the second period of Canada's 2-1 quarter-final win over Latvia.

The Canadian went down in a heap but skated to the bench where he was seen wincing in pain.

Head coach Mike Babcock said after the game that Tavares wouldn't be able to play again in Sochi.

Tavares didn't have a point in the tournament.
