Sedin was taken off the ice on a stretcher late in the second period of Sunday night’s regular-season finale against the Calgary Flames after taking a hit from behind.
Sedin crumpled to the ice after getting hit in the numbers by Calgary’s Paul Byron in the Vancouver zone with 2:44 left in the period. The Canucks’ trainer rushed to Sedin’s side and immediately signalled for a stretcher. The Canucks said Sedin was taken in stable condition to Vancouver General Hospital to undergo further evaluation. He exhibited signs of movement to his extremities and showed improvement from initially being hit.
Sedin (leg) will return to the Canucks lineup on Sunday.
Sedin has missed the last nine games with a leg injury that he suffered on March 2nd. He will replace Alex Burrows (thumb) on the Canucks top line and power-play unit. The Canucks are not completely out of the playoff race, but they will need the Sedin's to take over and win games for them.
Sedin (leg) skated at Canucks' practice on Friday.
Daniel skated on a line with his brother and Nicklas Jensen. He has missed the last nine games after suffering a leg injury on March 2. This is the first we have seen of Daniel skating on a regular line, so there is no word whether he will return on Sunday or not.
Sedin (lower-body) is out for "awhile" says John Tortorella.

Sedin (leg) could miss a minimum of 3 weeks.
Sedin was injured following a hit by Senators defenseman Marc Methot on Sunday. The Canucks have had a rough time this season and the absence of Sedin will only further their goal scoring woes.

Daniel Sedin takes a demotion in linemates with Henrik out.
Sedin was bumped from the top-line in practice today. With his brother out of the lineup, Daniel found himself alongside Zac Dalpe and Zack Kassian on the second line. Henrik and Daniel should be reunited soon, but while Henrik is out, Daniel's fantasy stock takes a hit.
The Vancouver Canucks have signed Daniel and Henrik Sedin to four-year, $28 million dollar deals.
Daniel is in his 13th season in the NHL - all with the Canucks. He has 297 goals and 476 assists in 921 career NHL games. He has had a strong start to the 2013-14 season, posting 15 points (6G / 9A) in 15 games. Daniel will remain a Canuck with his brother until they are 37.

D. Sedin will be a healthy scratch tonight in order to rest before the playoffs.
Daniel says he feels much better than a week ago. Game time decision
He also mentioned he is in the worse shape he's been in in the last 5 years. The Canucks, however, will take whatever boost they can get and Daniel Sedin is certainly an offensive boost.
