Sedin was injured in the second period against the Ottawa Senators when he was hit into the boards behind the Senators net by defenseman defenseman Mark Methot. At the time, Sedin grabbed for the back of his left leg. He left the game and did not return.
Sedin has 13 goals and 27 assists in 63 games this season. He has not scored fewer than 18 goals in a full season since 2003-04, his fourth in the NHL.
I spent a long summer thinking about that playoff series and what could have been. [The Blackhawks] ended up being the Stanley Cup champions, so we know we lost to a very good team. It's tough to know how close we were, and it motivates us for this year.
