Sedin (knee) likely back in the Canucks lineup on Saturday.
Updating an earlier report: John Tortorella said he expects to have Sedin back in his lineup tomorrow. Sedin has missed the last four games but will likely be centering a line with Chris Higgins and Nicklas Jensen on his wings Saturday. This does not matter much to the Canucks, but could mean a lot to fantasy owners. Henrik was dropped in 11% of Yahoo! leagues, so take a peek for his availability.
Sedin has missed the last four games but is skating again this afternoon. The Canucks' season is virtually over, so unless Henrik is 100 per cent, John Tortorella likely will not put him into his lineup. Monitor his status leading up to Saturday's game.
Sedin (leg) skated prior to the Canucks morning skate on Tuesday.
Sedin will miss his fourth straight game tonight vs. the Rangers, but it is a good sign to see him back on the ice. The Canucks are desperately trying to salvage their season and make it into the playoffs and having a healthy Daniel and Henrik would certainly help their chances. Sedin remains day-to-day.
Sedin appeared to injure his leg, likely his knee in the second period of Sunday's win over the Sabres. This one-time ironman might be starting to show his age at 33-years-old. For all intensive purposes, his fantasy season is pretty much over.
Sedin left Sunday's game with a leg injury and did not return.
Sedin was injured when he went for a hit behind the Buffalo net. He skated off flexing his knee and did not return. On a night where the Canucks got Daniel Sedin and Ryan Kesler back in their lineup, things were starting to look up on the injury front. However, with Henrik's recent injury, their playoff chances take another hit. Monitor his status in the next 24 hours, but for now consider him day-to-day.
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.
