Henrik Sedin, the Vancouver Canucks centre currently playing for MODO of the Swedish Elitserien, had the tip of his left pinky amputated earlier this week as a result of an injury he suffered in a game Saturday. Sedin sustained a broken finger from a slash and the original diagnosis was that he would miss four-to-six weeks. Doctors told him that he could be back playing within a few days, if they amputated about one centimetre off the tip of his broken finger. Sedin agreed to the procedure.
