VANCOUVER - The Vancouver Canucks will have captain and top-line center Henrik Sedin back in the lineup when they try to end the Nashville Predators' franchise-record 14-game point streak on Saturday.

Sedin missed two games with an upper-body injury, but was back at practice for the past two days and will be reunited with twin brother Daniel Sedin against Nashville. With their regular right wing Jannik Hansen still out with a rib injury, 19-year-old rookie Jake Virtanen will get his first chance to play with the Sedins since the preseason.
