Henrik Sedin's ironman streak ends

Monday, 01.20.2014 / 4:52 PM / News

Kevin Woodley - NHL.com Correspondent

VANCOUVER – For the first time in almost 10 years, the Vancouver Canucks will play a game without Henrik Sedin.

The Canucks captain and leading scorer won't play Tuesday on the road against the Edmonton Oilers, ending his franchise-record ironman streak at 679 games. Sedin hasn't missed a game since March 2004, but didn't finish Vancouver's last two games.

Sedin was knocked out of a 1-0 loss against the Phoenix Coyotes on Thursday after taking a late crosscheck in the back of the ribs. He played Saturday against the Calgary Flames, extending the NHL's second-longest active streak to 689 games, but was clearly laboring in the second period and didn't come out for the third.


Jets forward Kane will return to lineup Tuesday

Monday, 01.20.2014 / 4:18 PM / News


The Winnipeg Jets will be close to full strength Tuesday against the Anaheim Ducks with the return of Evander Kane. The Jets forward missed the past four games with a deep cut on his hand.

Kane participated in a full practice Monday and coach Paul Maurice declared he was ready to go.

"Leading into [Monday], he had three hard skates, and that’s what we were waiting for," Maurice told the Winnipeg Sun. "It’s that conditioning of being able to skate. So he’s in the lineup [Tuesday]."

Maurice said he'll start Kane with Mark Scheifele and Blake Wheeler, though that is subject to change.

"I'd like to think I’m going to have some patience with it, because I'd like to see it work," Maurice said. "At the same time, I do have another place for him as well that I wouldn't mind seeing him."

Despite missing 12 games to injury, Kane's 14 goals rank third on the Jets. Kane's father will also be on the Jets' two-game California swing during which players are allowed to bring their dads.

I came into a team that had 65 points, that was at the bottom of the basement, a team that everybody wrote off as never going to be good. My goal is to go from the very bottom to the very top.
