Henrik Sedin won't play vs. Oilers; ironman streak ends at 679 games

VANCOUVER - Henrik Sedin's NHL ironman streak has come to an end at 679 games.

Canucks assistant coach Mike Sullivan confirmed Monday that the Vancouver captain will not play Tuesday in Edmonton against the Oilers. Sedin had the second-highest total for consecutive games among active players behind St. Louis Blues defenceman Jay Bouwmeester.

Sullivan said Sedin is listed as day to day, but did not disclose the centre's injury.

Sedin, who has not been able to take face-offs lately, left after the second period of Saturday's brawl-marred game against the Calgary Flames which the Canucks won 3-2 in a shootout.

Sedin last missed a game 10 seasons ago.

Bouwmeester took a streak of 682 consecutive appearances into the Blues' game Monday night at Detroit.

Quote of the Day

That's today's game. That's one of the things you have to deal with when you're a championship team. Guys are going to earn more money based on their performance and what they've achieved, [and] deservedly so. [Saad] falls into that category.
