Daniel Sedin Practices, Expects To Play For Vancouver In Game 4
EL SEGUNDO (AP) — Daniel Sedin has returned to practice with the Vancouver Canucks, but hasn’t decided whether he’ll play in the crucial Game 4 of their playoff series with the Los Angeles Kings.
The Canucks’ top goal-scorer and last season’s Hart Trophy finalist skated with his teammates Tuesday at the Kings’ training complex for the first time since getting a concussion 12 games ago.
Sedin says he has felt fairly normal for quite a while, following several days of constant headaches. He’s still following the NHL’s concussion protocol.
Vancouver coach Alain Vigneault says the team’s medical staff will determine whether Sedin should play. He’s not about to rush Sedin, even with the Canucks facing elimination.
Presidents’ Trophy-winning Vancouver has scored just four goals in its three losses to the eighth-seeded Kings.
