Sedin (personal) "is landing this morning, we hope he will play" said head coach John Tortorella.
Sedin had been in Sweden dealing with a family matter, so we likely won't know until closer to puck-drop if he will be in the lineup tonight. If he does play, expect him to skate on a line with his brother and Alex Burrows.
Sedin (personal) still not back at Canucks practice Tuesday.
There is no word on whether or not Sedin will be available for Wednesday's clash with the Blues. Monitor his status during tomorrow's morning skate. Sedin has missed eight of the last 10 games with a rib/finger injury (also held him out of the Olympics).
Henrik Sedin will not play in the Sochi Winter Olympics, according to a Swedish press report.
The Vancouver Canucks captain has been dealing with a suspected rib injury and team coach John Tortorella said on Thursday morning that Sedin would not play against the Canadiens in Montreal on Thursday night nor against the Maple Leafs in Toronto on Saturday. The Swedish media outlet Aftonbladet report said Thursday afternoon that Sedin is definitely out, quoting the Canuck directly. It is a blow for Sweden, a medal contender, given that Sedin had been set to centre the country’s top line, with his twin brother Daniel and Boston Bruins forward Loui Eriksson.
Sedin (ribs/finger) will not play in the final two games before the Olympic break.
Sedin returned to the Canucks lineup on Monday in Detroit after missing the previous six games. Sedin also played on Tuesday in Boston, both nights he played more than 20 minutes, but was held off of the scoresheet. "We are shutting Henrik down for next 2 games. He wants to play, but he's not as effective as we need him to be right now," said Canucks head coach John Tortorella.
Sedin (finger/ribs) returns to the Canucks lineup tonight.
Sedin missed the last six games, but he will suit up for Monday's tilt with the Red Wings. Sedin has 40 points (9G / 31A) and a plus-7 rating in 50 games this season. Daniel will be excited to get his brother back on his line tonight, he recorded just one assist in the six games that Henrik missed.
The Canucks are in action on Sunday and Sedin's absence at Saturday's practice does not bode well for his availability for Sunday's clash with Phoenix. Monitor his status during Sunday's morning skate.
Sedin did not skate on Wednesday which puts his status for Thursday's contest in jeopardy. When his ironman streak was intact, he likely would have tried harder to be in the lineup, but now that that is over the Canucks will tread lightly with their star playmaker.
Sedin (back/finger) has been ruled out for Tuesday's contest.
Sedin's ironman streak will come to an end at 679 games. That is the sixth longest in NHL history, the last time he missed a regular season game was during the 2003-04 season. Sedin is listed as day-to-day.
Sedin (undisclosed) is questionable to play tonight vs. the Flames.
Sedin has played in an amazing 678 straight games for the Canucks, a streak that is in jeopardy tonight. We are hearing that there is about a 50/50 chance that Sedin will play. Monitor his status at the morning skate and again tonight during warmups.
The Vancouver Canucks have signed Daniel and Henrik Sedin to four-year, $28 million dollar deals.
Like Daniel, Henrik has played all 13 seasons with Vancouver after being drafted third overall in 1999. One of the NHL's premiere playmakers has 625 assists to go along with 185 goals in 955 career games. He is currently tied for second in the NHL with 18 points (3 G / 15 A).
