No hockey for a week? Mounting injuries? Blah blah blah. The important news is our single Sedin is one of the top players of the week:
Sedin finished tied for third among scorers for the week, recording seven points (3-4-7) as the Canucks won two of their three games. Sedin scored a goal in a 5-3 loss to the Columbus Blue Jackets on Oct. 5. Two nights later, Sedin notched two goals and two assists in a 7-1 victory over the Montreal Canadiens. He closed out the week by recording two assists in a 4-3 shootout win over the Dallas Stars, Oct 11. In his ninth NHL season, the native of Ornskoldsvik, Sweden, leads Vancouver with eight points (3-5-8) in five games.
About his missing brother: word is he's going to try and be back as early as three weeks from now (as opposed to the four to six weeks report from yesterday). Meanwhile his replacement on the top line - Steve Bernier - had an assist but finished with a -1 last night.
