SAN JOSE -- Vancouver Canucks captain Henrik Sedin sustained an upper-body injury early in the first period against the San Jose Sharks at SAP Center on Saturday and did not return.

Sedin took a forearm to the chest from Sharks defenseman Brent Burns along the sideboards 4:45 into the game. He went to one knee on the ice but eventually skated to the bench under his own power. Sedin returned for his next shift, but he played only 3:36 in the first period and did not see time on the power play after being injured.

Sedin remained in the dressing room when the second period began, and the Canucks said he would not return.
