VANCOUVER, B.C. – Daniel Sedin, the Vancouver Canucks’ leading scorer last season with 31 goals, didn’t practice Friday because of a foot injury and his status is unknown for Sunday’s home game against the Dallas Stars.
Coach Alain Vigneault said Sedin was hit by a puck during Wednesday’s 7-1 win over the Montreal Canadiens.
Henrik Sedin said after practice that his twin brother hopes to play Sunday.
“It’s a little sore today,” Henrik said of the injury. “He got treatment this morning and left after that.
“It shouldn’t be too big of a thing. He’s walking all right but getting the foot in the skate wasn’t very comfortable. He should be all right.”
If Daniel Sedin can’t play, Steve Bernier, who joined the twins on the power play against Montreal, could move up to the top line with Henrik and Alex Burrows.
