Henrik Sedin (ribs) will play for Vancouver on Wednesday.

Sedin stayed out of the 2014 Winter Olympics so that he could rest his injured ribs. With nine goals and 40 points in 52 games, this has been something of an off-year for Sedin, but obviously his return still provide the struggling Canucks with a big boost.

Henrik Sedin, who turned down the chance to play for Sweden at the Sochi Olympics because of a rib injury, has returned to practicing with the Vancouver Canucks.

And the captain fully expects to be in the lineup when the Canucks return to action next week. Sedin, who returned to practice with the Canucks on Friday, has done no second-guessing of his decision to shut it down and rest a rib injury he suffered Jan. 16 in Phoenix. "Once I got a few days into the break where I felt like I (still) wasn't close to 100 per cent it made it feel better," Sedin said. "It was a tough decision, like I said, but it would have felt awful toward my teammates and myself and Team Sweden to go over there and not be at 100 per cent." He may not yet be 100 per cent, but you get the sense he is close. After skating Wednesday and Thursday with other injured players, Sedin joined the main group at Friday's practice and showed no ill effects. "I was very pleased with the practice and how I felt," Sedin said. "Everything is going the way I wanted it to go, so that's good."

Henrik Sedin won't play in either of Vancouver's last two games before the Olympic break.

He just returned from a rib injury on Monday, but he hasn't been very effective in two appearances since coming back. "We are shutting Henrik down for next two games," coach John Tortorella said. "He wants to play, but he's not as effective as we need him to be right now." The Canucks coach added that he'd prefer that Sedin not play in the Winter Olympics, but that decision will be left up to the player.
