Sedin lit the lamp in Thursday's 3-2 shootout loss to Nashville. Sedin came into the contest with a sore back, but showed no ill effects, notching goal No. 27 on the season. The winger had gone cold in his last five, recording just one assist in that span after registering four points in six games to kick off March. It's seems as if the 35-year-old is fine and can be trusted moving forward.
Sedin (back) told reporters he left Wednesday's practice due to a sore back but will still be in the lineup Thursday against Nashville. Sedin will continue his ironman streak of suiting up for every Canucks' game this season. The 35-year-old leads the team in goals and points with 26 and 58 respectively. His fantasy value remains top-end factoring in both his production and the amount of time the winger spends on the ice. This season, Sedin is averaging 18:22 per contest, which is approaching defenseman numbers and includes over three minutes of power-play ice time per night.
Sedin left Wednesday's practice early for unspecified reason. Coach Willie Desjardins didn't offer any further details on his early departure after practice, leaving his status cloudy heading into Thursday's matchup with the Predators. Expect another update on the star winger's status come game day confirming his status for the evening's contest, but the Canucks have little reason to rush him into an action if the veteran's dealing with an injury.
Sedin tallied a goal on four shots and added a blocked shot in Tuesday's 3-2 loss to the Islanders. The younger Sedin twin has now notched goals in back-to-back games and has 10 points in his last eight games. While it is unlikely that the 35-year-old will match the 76 points he tallied last season, this has still been his second most productive season since his 2011-12 campaign. Sedin should still make his way into your lineups on a nightly basis.
Sedin scored his 23rd goal of the season in Sunday's 4-1 home loss to San Jose. Sedin took a pass from Ben Hutton and stuffed the puck past Martin Jones from close range for Vancouver's lone goal. The 35-year-old winger is now up to 53 points on the season and has been extremely hot lately with nine points in his last seven games.
