Daniel Sedin

Daniel Sedin is “getting better and better,” says brother Henrik, as reported by The Globe and Mail’s David Ebner.

Daniel (concussion) has missed six games since getting elbowed in the head by Chicago’s Duncan Keith. The Canucks are hopeful their top goal-scorer will be back by the playoffs.

According to CTV’s Perry Solkowski, Daniel has been doing some light off-ice exercise the last three days at Rogers Arena in Vancouver.

    My guess is he was never too hurt to begin with. The Canucks are just taking the opportunity to give him some rest and make sure he’s at 120% come Game 1. But I could also be completely wrong, you never know with concussions.

      You were better off not leaving a comment then.

        Same could be said for at least half the commenters here, but sorry for inconveniencing you.

        I agree that one never knows with concussions … but I do know a thing or two about the Swedish character … and therefore I’m convinced that Daniel is healing as best he can …

      My guess is that Perry Solkowski didn’t even talk to the Daniel or Henrick. He’s just trying to act like he’s connected to the team so he keeps his job. But I could also be completely wrong, you never know with journalists.

      No 1943mrmojorisin1971, it’s really just you specifically. Claiming that the guy is faking a concussion sets a new record for stupidity.

        Who said anything about faking? I think if this was the playoffs there’s a chance he’d be playing but because this happened near the end of the season they’re being extra cautious with him.

    It’s hard to say with concussions. Look at Claude Giroux earlier this year, he was out for a couple of games and came back like nothing happened from what looked like a major problem. On the other hand, a ‘mild concussion’ has kept Nathan Horton out for over two months now. No way of knowing how someone will react to the injury, or how they’ll heal from it.

    as much as I dislike the canucks, i’m glad to hear his recovery is on point for a playoff return.

    One positive that comes out of this is Hank gets used to playing “get to the point” hockey again, which he’s actually quite good at. Last time he was separated from Daniel for a length of time, he won the Art Ross.
