Daniel Sedin sits out vs. Carolina
The Vancouver Canucks were without reigning NHL scoring champion Daniel Sedin for Thursday night's game in Carolina.

Sedin, the Canucks' leading scorer with 12 goals and 34 points, was scratched due to a stiff back. Vancouver called up forward Mark Mancari from its AHL affiliate in Chicago and inserted him into the lineup.

Mason Raymond is taking Sedin's spot on the line with Henrik Sedin and Alexandre Burrows.
Quote of the Day

It is really special. I had a lot of friends and family here tonight, and for my first [NHL] game in here it was great. I played here as an elementary-school player in the city championships and this was my first time back. It was a lot of fun..
