Canucks winger Daniel Sedin injured during NHL Heritage Classic against Senators

VANCOUVER - The Vancouver Canucks lost winger Daniel Sedin to injury during the second period of Sunday's NHL Heritage Classic against the Ottawa Senators.

Sedin was hurt in the second period as he collided with Ottawa defenceman Marc Methot.

Methot's elbow appeared to hit or come close to Sedin's head as the Canuck went down in a corner. But Sedin also held his leg in apparent pain.

No penalty was called on the play as the Senators took the puck back up the ice and had two scoring chances.

Sedin was helped by two trainers as he walked from the Canucks bench to Vancouver's dressing room.

Quote of the Day

We have no doubt how he can play. You don't, with four teams that are left, you're not getting here without good goaltending. All great goalies left, and [Bishop] is a top-tier goaltender in this league and he's shown it.

— Lightning coach Jon Cooper on goalie Ben Bishop, who shut out the Rangers in Game 5
