The captain and leading scorer of the Vancouver Canucks, Henrik Sedin, has played in 552 consecutive NHL games, but he may end up missing Thursday's matchup against the Minnesota Wild.

The Vancouver Sun reports that Sedin was wearing a walking boot on his right foot when the team arrived in Minnesota Wednesday afternoon, and had a CT scan done.

The injury happened in Tuesday night's 4-3 win over the Nashville Predators when a shot from defenseman Kevin Klein hit him in the foot, the Sun notes.

Coach Alain Vigneault said Wednesday that X-rays done the day before on the foot were "inconclusive," the paper notes: "They couldn't tell from the X-ray and he was just obviously in a lot of pain, so we'll just do a follow-up right now," he said.

Sedin has 11 goals and 46 assists so far this season.
