Henrik Sedin's streak continues

ST. PAUL, Minn. -- Vancouver Canucks captain Henrik Sedin is playing in his 553rd consecutive game Thursday night against the Minnesota Wild.

Sedin's streak, the second-longest active run in the NHL, was in jeopardy after he was hit in the foot Tuesday night by a slap shot from Nashville defenseman Kevin Klein.

Vancouver coach Alain Vigneault said before Thursday's game that a CT scan came back clean. Sedin took part in the morning skate and was a game-time decision.

Sedin is fifth in the NHL with 57 points.

Calgary Flames defenseman Jay Bouwmeester is the active consecutive games played leader with 559 entering Thursday.
