Bruised ribs will force Vancouver Canucks forward Henrik Sedin to miss Tuesday's game against the Edmonton Oilers and will end his consecutive games played streak at 679.

Canucks assistant coach Mike Sullivan confirmed that Sedin will sit the game out and is considered day-to-day. The team packed for their flight to Edmonton on Monday but Sedin's gear was left behind.

Sedin's iron-man streak was the sixth-longest in NHL history, behind Doug Jarvis (964 games), Garry Unger (914), Steve Larmer (884), Craig Ramsay (776), and Jay Bouwmeester (active, 683).

Sedin was hurt during Saturday's victory over the Calgary Flames. The 33-year-old has nine goals and 31 assists in 50 games this season. He is 10 games shy of reaching 1,000 played for his career.

The last time the Canucks played without Sedin was March 19, 2004. He amassed 688 points during the streak.
