Daniel Sedin back on ice before Game 2

Daniel Sedin skated on his own Friday, though the Vancouver Canucks continued to say little about the injured winger’s status.

Sedin resumed skating after staying off the ice for two days. He went out in full gear in a separate group before the morning skate involving players expected to play in Game 2 of the Western Conference quarterfinal series against the Los Angeles Kings at night.

Hopes were raised earlier in the week when Sedin, out with a concussion since March 21, practiced Monday for the first time since he was injured, and then skated with extra players in a group separate from the main practice.

But he didn’t play in a 4-2 loss in Game 1.

Center Henrik Sedin refused to comment on his brother’s status Friday.
