Daniel Sedin’s goal and assist were not enough for Vancouver as they fell 5-2 in Montreal on Sunday.

Jan 7 - 9:55 PM

Daniel Sedin found the back of the net in Vancouver's 5-4 overtime loss to San Jose on Thursday.

Daniel Sedin reached and then surpassed the 1,000-point milestone on Thursday.

Sedin scored a goal and registered two assists in Vancouver's 5-3 win over Nashville. His goal, which was the 1,000th point, tied the contest at 3-3 in the third period. "I said it before that it would be great to get it and for it to be a goal and in a huge win for us, and both happened today," said Daniel. The Canucks have substantially cut the Sedin twins' playing time this season, but Daniel has still chipped in with six goals and 15 points in 26 contests.

Daniel Sedin picked up a goal and an assist in Friday's 3-2 loss to the New Jersey Devils

Sedin tied the game at one at the 5:36 mark of the second period. He then helped set up Bo Horvat's power play tally midway through the third frame to cut his team's deficit to 3-2. Sedin is just two points shy of reaching the 1000 mark for his career. He has five goals and seven assists in 23 games this season. The veteran winger needs to be left on the waiver wire in most fantasy leagues.

Daniel Sedin scored a goal and registered an assist in Vancouver's 5-2 win over Philadelphia Tuesday night.

Sedin snapped a five-game point drought and moved himself just four points shy of reaching 1,000 over his career. His twin brother Henrik Sedin is at the other side of that milestone with his 1,030 career points. "It’s the same with Henrik," Daniel said, referring to the plateau. "I don’t think we look at that too much. When you start to do that, it’s going to be in the back of your head and you’re going to change your game. You go about your business."

Daniel Sedin picked up two assists with a plus-1 rating and a minor penalty in 11:29 of ice time in Tuesday's game at Calgary.

Sedin has picked up the pace with a goal and four points over the past five games. He is still a shell of his former self, but he isn't a terrible fantasy option, either. The 37-year-old Swedish forward is more of a 35-40 point player at this point of his career.

Daniel Sedin found the back of the net Friday in a 4-2 win over Buffalo.

Sedin logged just 11:11 of ice time in the contest. He has only played over 17 minutes once in seven games this season. The Sedins are being deployed differently this year and so far it has worked out well for the Canucks.

Daniel Sedin scored his first goal of the season in the Vancouver Canucks' 4-2 loss to the Winnipeg Jets on Thursday night.

Sedin opened the scoring but the Canucks' lead lasted less than two minutes. The Jets never looked back. If last season is any indication, the 37-year-old is slowing down in the point department and is now seven years removed from his 100-point season. He should be good for 15-20 goals but no longer has the fantasy value he once had.
Fri, Oct 13, 2017 12:57:00 AM

Canucks head coach Travis Green told Daniel Sedin that "we were not good enough last year" in their first meeting.

Not exactly a groundbreaking statement from Green, but it does suggest that he intends to be straightforward with his players. Green, who enjoyed a 970-game NHL career as a forward, is gearing up for his first season as a bench boss. Expectations are low for Vancouver this season and for Daniel Sedin, who was limited to 44 points in 2016-17 and will turn 37-years-old on Sept. 26.

Daniel Sedin and his teammates could not beat Jonathan Quick in a 2-0 loss to the Los Angeles Kings on Friday night.

Daniel Sedin came the closest of all his teammates when he was robbed by Quick after he deked his way through a couple of Kings skaters. He and countrymen Alex Edler led the way for the Canucks with six shots a piece. Sedin's pointless streak has now extended to six games and he has recorded 40 points in 77 games this season.

Daniel Sedin picked up a goal and an assist in Tuesday's 5-4 OT win over the Chicago Blackhawks.

Sedin registered the primary assist on Henrik Sedin's first-period goal before scoring the game-winning goal in the overtime period. It was Daniel's first goal in 10 contests. The Canucks held a 4-1 lead in the third period, but they watched it evaporate over the last 15 minutes. Thankfully, Daniel was able to give his team two points in the standings. He has 14 goals and 26 assists in 72 games this season. Brandon Sutter (twice),

Points haven't been coming easily for Daniel Sedin and the Vancouver Canucks, who were shut out 2-0 against the Edmonton Oilers on Saturday.

Sedin's been held off the board in eight of nine games in March, with his only offense coming in a two-assist performance against the Boston Bruins on March 13. His full season numbers aren't ideal: 13 goals, 38 points and a -13 rating in 71 GP.

Daniel Sedin might have been the most frustrated member of the Vancouver Canucks following a 3-0 loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins on Saturday.

Daniel Sedin suffered a -2 rating to go with those zero points, firing five SOG. Murray was up to the challenge each time. Perhaps Vancouver would have generated a little more offense if they received more than one power-play opportunity?
