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

I think everyone left it out there. Every game this season, regular season and playoffs, we played as hard as we could. We're not out of the playoffs right now because of lack of effort, and that's all that we can ask of each other.
