The Vancouver Canucks will be a superstar short Thursday night when they take on the Dallas Stars in Big D.
Daniel Sedin was sent back to Vancouver this morning to undergo further testing after taking an elbow to the head from Chicago Blackhawks defenceman Duncan Keith 13:36 into the first period of a 2-1 Canucks overtime loss Wednesday night.
Leave the jump to conclusions mat in your closet on this one, there’s no telling what this means for Daniel, other than that the Canucks are taking every precaution necessary to ensure he is fine before retuning to the ice.
How long Daniel will be out of Vancouver’s line-up remains to be seen and with only nine games left before the beginning of the 2012 Playoffs, the Canucks have to pull up their socks to make up for his absence.
Manny Malhotra will slot back into the Canucks line-up; coach Alain Vigneault has not confirmed what Vancouver’s lines will be, all we know is that Cory Schneider gets the start between the pipes, his third in four games.
