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

[He's] real confident with the puck now, getting it off his stick quick and no second-guessing. We need that. He's such a good guy in the room. He works so hard. That's the big thing. For not a big man, he just fights for every puck and when he scores, the guys appreciate that even more.
