rejoined the Vancouver Canucks
at practice Monday morning.
Sedin, who won the Art Ross
Trophy as the NHL's leading scorer last season, took his usual spot on the top line alongside twin brother Henrik and Alexandre Burrows
Vancouver's leading goal scorer hasn't played since being concussed by an elbow from Chicago defenseman Duncan Keith
on March 21, but his return was a positive sign Sedin could be ready for Game 1 of the first round of the playoffs, Wednesday night against Los Angeles.
Sedin, who still leads the team with 30 goals and is second with 67 points despite missing the final nine games, skated on his own with a skills coach before practice and stayed out with the main group when they took to the ice. Sedin wasn't wearing a white helmet the way defenseman Keith Ballard
, who has been out since early February with a concussion, did before he was cleared for full contact in practice last week.
