Canucks reveal Henrik Sedin played through broken finger

Winslow Townson / USA TODAY Sports

Vancouver Canucks captain Henrik Sedin missed eight games this season, but it's a wonder he didn't sit out more.

Canucks president Trevor Linden revealed in a press conference Tuesday that Sedin suffered a broken finger at some point during the campaign, but played through it.

Linden didn't indicate when the injury occurred.

Sedin's 74 games played were the second-lowest total for him over an 82-game season. His career low came in 2013-14, when he suited up for 70 contests.

The 35-year-old still topped 50 points for 10th time in his career, totaling 55.
