Daniel Sedin nursing bad foot
Vancouver Canucks star forward Daniel Sedin missed practice Friday with a foot injury, and his status for Sunday's home game against Dallas is up in the air.
Sedin, who led Vancouver with 31 goals last season, was struck in the foot by a puck during Wednesday's 7-1 home win over Montreal. He finished the game with three assists, giving him four points (all assists) in four games.
Asked whether Sedin may have a broken foot, Canucks GM Mike Gillis said, "I don't know. We're waiting for the swelling to go down."
Henrik Sedin, who tied his twin brother for the team lead last season with 82 points, said after Friday's practice that Daniel hopes to play Sunday.
"It's a little sore today," Henrik said of his brother's 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.
