Vancouver Canucks Captain Henrik Sedin Out Two Weeks with Lower-Body injury


Vancouver Canucks captain Henrik Sedin will be out two weeks with a lower-body injury, according to TVA Sports’ Renaud Lavoie.

Henrik appeared to injure himself when he got tangled with forward Tyler Ennis behind the Buffalo Sabres net. He finished the second period, but did not return for the third.

The exit of Henrik is a frustrating blow to the Canucks since his offensive game just picked up in recent games. He has five points in his last five games after registering only one point in the previous 15 games.

Daniel Sedin had just returned from a nine-game absence due to a hamstring injury. It was hoped a reinvigorated Henrik and prospect Nicklas Jensen, who has three goals and five points in eight games, would help Daniel rediscover his scoring touch.

A two-week recovery puts a return April 7 against the Anaheim Ducks at home with four games remaining on the regular season schedule.
