The latest update about Daniel Sedin's health did not come from the Canucks, but Sweden, and one reliable source.
Daniel's dad, Tommy, spoke to the Swedish website Allehanda.se and told the outlet that Daniel would be out of Game 1 against the Kings. The series opener is Wednesday night in Vancouver.
Daniel Sedin, who suffered a concussion March 21, practiced Monday but did not take part in the main session Tuesday, skating with the extra Canucks players afterward. His twin brother and linemate, Henrik, had told the Vancouver media on Monday that his brother was 100% and the Canucks insisted that Daniel had not suffered a setback.
The Kings were preparing as though Daniel would be ready and a former Canucks defenseman, the Kings' Willie Mitchell, said he "100%" expected to see Daniel in the lineup. Now that might be Game 2 or possibly when the series moves to Los Angeles.
