Report: Henrik Sedin playing through finger injury, wearing a splint

Ian McLaren

Some light has been shed on the apparent injury that Vancouver Canucks forward Henrik Sedin has been playing through as of late.

Sedin has registered four points in his last three games, but did not take a single faceoff in Tuesday's 5-4 shootout loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins; for the season, Sedin is averaging over 17 draws per game.

Vancouver's next game is Friday against the St. Louis Blues.
