The Vancouver Canucks' current ironman could see his streak come to an end.

Captain Henrik Sedin was not at the Xcel Energy Center in Minnesota for Wednesday's practice and was seen at the team's hotel limping around in a large walking boot.

X-rays on Sedin's ankle were inconclusive so he is having a CT scan in Minnesota today. His playing status won't be known until after the scan.

Sedin was injured in Tuesday's win over the Nashville Predators, when a point shot by defenceman Kevin Klein struck him in the right ankle early in the first period.

Sedin dropped to the ice and had to be helped to the dressing room.

He returned to the game and proceeded to assist on the Canucks' first two goals.

Sedin has appeared in 552 consecutive games, the second-longest active streak in the NHL. Jay Bouwmeester of the Calgary Flames sits atop the list at 559 consecutive games.

Dale Weiss will also have a CT scan after blocking a shot in last night's game.
