VANCOUVER -- Daniel Sedin
did not take part in Wednesday's morning skate at Rogers Arena and has been ruled out for Game 1 against the Los Angeles Kings
on Wednesday night.
"There is nothing new to report. Obviously he's not going to play tonight," coach Alain Vigneault
Sedin, who won the Art Ross
Trophy as the NHL's leading scorer last season, practiced with teammates Monday for the first time since being concussed by an elbow from Chicago defenseman Duncan Keith
on March 21, but was not out with the main group on Tuesday, skating instead with a smaller group of spare part players after the main session ended.
Twin brother Henrik said Daniel was "100 percent" on Monday, and despite the absence Tuesday, coach Alain Vigneault
said Sedin hadn't suffered a setback in his recovery.
Daniel, who missed the final nine games of the season but still leads the team with 30 goals and is second with 67 points, has not talked with reporters since the injury, which earned Keith a five-game suspension.
