Sedin (lower-body) is out for "awhile" says John Tortorella.
The difficult season for the Canucks continues. Expect Chris Higgins to move up to the top-line while David Booth goes to the second and Darren Archibald draws in on the third line while Sedin is sidelined.
Daniel Sedin takes a demotion in linemates with Henrik out.
Sedin was bumped from the top-line in practice today. With his brother out of the lineup, Daniel found himself alongside Zac Dalpe and Zack Kassian on the second line. Henrik and Daniel should be reunited soon, but while Henrik is out, Daniel's fantasy stock takes a hit.
The Vancouver Canucks have signed Daniel and Henrik Sedin to four-year, $28 million dollar deals.
Daniel is in his 13th season in the NHL - all with the Canucks. He has 297 goals and 476 assists in 921 career NHL games. He has had a strong start to the 2013-14 season, posting 15 points (6G / 9A) in 15 games. Daniel will remain a Canuck with his brother until they are 37.
