Hank injured?

Hank's Ironman streak could be in jeopardy

The speculation surrounding what state our beloved Hank’s foot is in continues after he was seen wearing a large walking boot, limping around the Vancouver Canucks team hotel in St. Paul, Minnesota earlier today.

Captain Canuck missed practice at the Excel Energy Center to undergo a CT scan of his right ankle after a shot by defenseman Kevin Klein hit him in the first period of last night’s 4-3 shootout win against the Nashville Predators.

Sedin dropped to the ice and was helped to the Canucks’ dressing room, but soon after returned to finish the game.

This potential injury could result in jeopardizing Henrik’s 552 consecutive game streak, second longest in the NHL behind Calgary Flames’ defenceman Jay Bouwmeester with 559.

Here’s a list of tweets I was able to find this afternoon detailing exactly what was going on.

This time it may be a doctor's decision, not the coach's, that splits up the Sedins #Canuckstinyurl.com/6uj6ko3
