The Canucks lost one of their stars on Sunday when captain Henrik Sedin was the victim of a hit from behind.
Surprisingly it was a man known for being the victim of devastating hits, New York Islanders forward Mikhail Grabovski, who delivered the dangerous hit, between the numbers, several feet from the boards. You would think a man who has been so often injured by big hits, clean hits, would take more care to avoid throwing this type of check, but clearly that was not the case on Sunday.
Henrik is expected to be evaluated by team medical staff today, it's unclear at this time if he will be abvle to play for the coming games.
Henrik says he never saw hit come from Grabovski. Re: injury, he'll be evaluated tomorrow & it's borderline if he'll return on this trip.— Vancouver Canucks (@VanCanucks) January 18, 2016
