Vancouver Canucks captain and top-line center Henrik Sedin won't be on a two-game road trip that starts against the Minnesota Wild on Wednesday and is listed as day-to-day after sustaining a left knee injury Sunday, Canucks coach John Tortorella said Tuesday.
Sedin, who leads the team with 46 points in 65 games, was injured after making a hit behind the net late in the second period of a 4-2 win against the Buffalo Sabres on Sunday. Sabres forward Tyler Ennis bounced off the boards and fell into Sedin's left knee. Sedin didn't put much weight on his leg as he went to the locker room.
It will be the second time Sedin misses games this season. He had his streak of consecutive games played ended at 679 -- a streak that dated to March 21, 2004 -- when he missed eight games in January and February with a rib injury.
