Sedin logged over 20 minutes of ice time in his first game back from injury against Columbus on Thursday. Sedin was unable to get on the scoresheet, but showed few signs of fatigue, as he exceeded his season average game time by more than two minutes. While it would have been nice for the 35-year-old to record a marker, it will take time to get his legs under him after being out since Jan. 17. The center has not scored a goal in his last 16 outings, but will look to end that streak Saturday against the Flames.
Sedin (upper body) will return to the lineup Thursday night against the Blue Jackets, Iain MacIntyre of the Vancouver Sun reports. Sedin missed the past four games due to the upper-body ailment, but it appears that he's safe to activate Thursday for an attractive match against a Columbus team that's allowing more than 30 shots per contest. Sedin has nine goals and 28 assists in 44 games this season, complemented by a plus-11 rating.
Sedin (upper body) returned to practice Tuesday, Ben Kuzma of the Vancouver Province reports. Sedin has missed the Canucks' last four games with an upper-body injury, but his return to practice Tuesday bodes well for his chances of returning to action Thursday against Columbus. Expect an update on the 35-year-old forward's status ahead of Vancouver's matchup with the Blue Jackets.
Sedin (undisclosed) is expected to return to practice following the All-Star break. Sedin landed on injured reserve Jan. 20 after he was earlier ruled out through the All-Star break, but it appears that absence may not extend too far beyond it. If he returns to practice following the interlude as expected, it wouldn't be a stretch for him to rejoin the lineup for the team's first game of the second half Feb. 4 against the Blue Jackets, though that should sort itself out as the date nears.
Sedin (undisclosed) is officially listed on injured reserve. This was expected since Sedin likely will not be back until after the All-Star break (Jan. 30-31). Jared McCan has been bumped up to the top line in his absence, but the Canucks have yet to call up another player to take Sedin's spot on the roster. He'll be eligible to return Jan. 26 against the Predators.
