Henrik Sedin missed practice on Wednesday and was reportedly in a walking boot after taking a slapshot off his right ankle the night before.

Vancouver Canucks captain Henrik Sedin did not practice on Wednesday after injuring his ankle the night before. Sedin's right ankle was hit by a slapshot in the Canucks win over the Predators on Tuesday, and the effects of the puck to the ankle were enough to keep him on the bench as the team practiced the next day.

Perhaps worse, Sedin is scheduled to undergo further evaluations and was reportedly seen in a walking boot.

Captain Henrik Sedin missed practice Wednesday and was scheduled to have a CT scan after taking a slap shot off the outside of his right ankle early during Tuesday's 4-3 shootout win in Nashville. He reportedly was seen wearing a walking boot at the team's hotel in St. Paul.

Sedin did return to the game after the injury, but x-rays taken after the matchup were "inconclusive." Vancouver takes the ice again on Thursday night against the Wild, but it's unclear whether Sedin will be joining the team on the ice.
