The Vancouver Canucks will be without top forward Daniel Sedin for four to six weeks because of a broken foot.
Sedin, who averaged more than 30 goals for the Canucks over the last three seasons, was hit in the foot by a shot from teammate Alex Edler in a 7-1 win over Montreal Canadiens on Wednesday. He finished the game and recorded three assists, but X-rays on Friday revealed a fracture.
It’s the first serious injury in his nine-year career.
Sedin has averaged more than 30 goals over the last three seasons for the Canucks, and he and his twin, Henrik Sedin, tied for the team lead with 82 points last season.
The Sedin twins have had remarkably similar — and durable — careers since being selected second and third overall by the Canucks in the 1999 draft. Both had 466 career points heading into Sunday’s game against Dallas.
Vancouver made it to the conference semi-final last year despite star Goalie Roberto Luongo being injured and unable to play for two months. The loss of Daniel Sedin could be more damaging.
