Sedin Active vs. Blue Jackets
Thursday, Feb. 4
The team announced Sedin will play against Columbus on Thursday.
Sedin Production Vital to Canucks' Postseason Hopes
The Sedin twins, Henrik and brother Daniel, remain the driving force behind the Canucks' offense at age 35. Daniel has 44 points in 50 games while his now-injured brother has 37 points in 44 contests. No other player has tallied more than 22 points.
Vancouver isn't particularly deep down the middle, which made Sedin's absence even more concerning. Jared McCann and Bo Horvat figure to fill top-six roles at center for the time being as the team tries to fight into a wild-card spot. It is currently five points out in the West.
Sedin's return to the ice doesn't guarantee the Canucks a playoff spot, but it certainly goes a long way toward nabbing a postseason bid.
