Daniel Sedin is expected to practice with the Canucks today, reports Global’s Kristin Reid.

Reid says Sedin should be ready for Wednesday’s Game 1 against the Kings, assuming he can practice symptom-free today and tomorrow.

Sedin missed the last nine games of the regular season after suffering a concussion from a Duncan Keith elbow.

Vancouver went 8-1-0 without Sedin, but against a stingy Los Angeles team, the Canucks will want their top goal-scorer in the lineup.

In four games versus the Kings this season, Vancouver managed just seven goals combined. The Canucks won the teams’ last meeting, 1-0.

    They should make him switch helmets to the Messier helmet for at least a few games.

      Let’s hope that Daniel IS fully healed and back 100% and not trying to come back before he’s fully recovered. It’s not worth risking a short time gain, for even longer term pain. Taking the 1st playoff game off would give him almost another week of recovery time, if needed. Canucks can get by without him for at least one game.
