Daniel Sedin lit the lamp for the Canucks in their 5-2 loss to the Maple Leafs on Saturday night.
Getting away from John Tortorella’s dump-and-chase, collapsing style has been a boon to the Sedin brothers. Daniel now has seven goals and 25 points this season, 22 shy of the total from last year. Henrik assisted on the goal, and he has 25 points as well. Chris Tanev got the other goal. Dec 6 - 10:16 PM

Daniel Sedin picked up two goals and an assist for the Canucks Tuesday en route to a 4-3 win over Washington.

The goals were just the fifth and sixth of the campaign for Daniel, but his 18 assists on the year bring his total to 24 in 25 games. Derek Dorsett and Radim Vrbata also scored goals for Vancouver in the win while Henrik Sedin dished out a pair of helpers.

Daniel Sedin will play in his 1,000th NHL game on Sunday when the Canucks host the Chicago Blackhawks.

Daniel has 311 goals and 825 career points with the Canucks in 999 games and one interesting stat is that he was a minus-player only once in his career when he was minus-three as a rookie. Even under John Tortorella last season, he was still even in the plus/minus category. Congratulations to Daniel Sedin on the accomplishment tonight.

Daniel Sedin assisted on three goals in the Vancouver Canucks' 5-4 victory over the Oilers in Edmonton Wednesday night.

Sedin now has 15 assists on the season. His linemate and twin brother, Henrik Sedin, picked up two assists in Edmonton to give him 14 for the season. New Canuck Radim Vrbata continues to benefit from playing on a line with the Sedins, as he scored two goals, bringing his season total to eight. Also scoring goals for the Canucks in this back-and-forth affair were Jannik Hansen, his fourth of the season, Chris Higgins, also his fourth and Yannick Weber, his first. Weber's game winner came at 11:32 of the third period.

Daniel Sedin scored the game-winner and added an assist in the Canucks' 4-3 overtime win over Ottawa on Tuesday.

It was Sedin magic at its best as the brothers owned the Senators in their own end before Daniel took a cross-ice pass from his brother to end the game in style. It was his 12th career game-winning-goal and second of the year. Daniel Sedin has 16 points in 17 games played now and a bounce back to a point-per-game average or more is very likely this season. Kevin Bieksa, Shawn Mattias and Alex Burrows potted the other goals for the Canucks who just keep on rolling.

Daniel Sedin had an assist in a 3-2 win against the San Jose Sharks on Thursday.

Sedin had just 47 points last season, but he's bounced right back in 2014-15 with three goals and 14 points in 14 contests. He should be able to maintain that point-per-game pace.

Daniel Sedin finished off another perfect feed from brother Henrik to finish off Montreal in overtime on Thursday night.

And it was on the power play, too. You know how it is, Henrik carries over the line, draws all three defenders to him while Daniel gets open on the right side. Henrik sauces to Daniel, backhand-forehand-water bottle. Good night. Like a video game. Carey Price never had a chance.

Daniel Sedin scored another goal and an assist in Vancouver's 7-3 loss in Denver on Friday night.

Just ten seconds into the game, the Canucks were up 1-0 and Daniel Sedin had his first point, an assist on brother Henrik's shot. They'd hold onto the lead for another fourteen minutes..and then it all fell apart. Daniel would one-time a dish from Radim Vrbata midway through the third to make it 5-3. He now has ten points and two goals through seven games.

The top line of Daniel Sedin, Henrik Sedin and Radim Vrbata were each a minus-two on Saturday.

The troika had a combined 17 points in the first three games but managed only a solitary assist in this one, courtesy of Daniel who now has tied his linemates at six points apiece. Hopefully this is just a rare bad game for the top line.

Daniel Sedin had three assists Saturday in the Canucks 5-4 shootout win.

The Canucks sniper now has four helpers in two games but has yet to find the back of the net. He had a horrible season in 2013-14 with only 16 goals and 47 points in 73 games but we think he can easily get back to the 70 point mark and perhaps 80, this season. Take him if you can or trade for him if he is available.

Daniel Sedin potted a goal for Vancouver, which topped the Oilers 3-2 on Saturday night.

Brother Henrik had two assists in the win. It was a down year for the Sedin brothers last season under coach John Tortorella. The hope is that new coach Willie Desjardins will unleash them again. Both players should return to their usual selves in 2014-15. Chris Higgins and Radim Vrbata got the other goals. Ryan Miller had 27 saves.

Daniel Sedin picked up two assists Friday night, both on the powerplay.

The Sedin chemistry was in mid-season form as he and his brother Henrik weaved through Calgary's penalty kill. In 22:00 minutes of ice time and 7:11 on the PP, Jannik Hansen and Radim Vrbata were the beneficiaries.

Daniel Sedin spoke to the media on Monday and said he was fine after he was stretchered off the ice Sunday night.

He was checked out at the hospital and released late Sunday night after he was hit into the end boards by Calgary's Paul Byron. "I was scared because I felt something wasn't right," he said. "I hit my head into the glass and fell down and when I tried to lift my head I couldn't get it off the ice. It was scary, but I went to the hospital and everything looked good. So it feels okay today." He isn't expecting any lingering issues.

Daniel Sedin was released from the hospital after he was taken off the ice on a stretcher due to a hit into the boards on Sunday.

Paul Byron hit Sedin from behind and there was some concern that he was injured severely as he was seen moving his fingers but nothing else at the time. The good news is that he was stable in hospital and then released. The Canucks season is over so Sedin will have all of the off-season to recover.

Vancouver forward Daniel Sedin was taken off the ice on a stretcher after an awkward hit into the side boards late in the second period in the Canucks' 5-1 rout of the visiting Calgary Flames Sunday night.

Sedin's head hit the glass after he was hit from behind by Flames forward Paul Byron, and he never got up on the ice. Sedin was moving his fingers but nothing else as medical trainer Mike Burnstein came off the bench and quickly called for a stretcher to take Sedin off the ice. Byron was given a five-minute major and a game misconduct for boarding. Sedin scored twice in the first period, his 15th and 16th goals of the season. Frank Corrado (first), Ryan Kesler (25th) and Yannick Weber (sixth) also scored for the Canucks, who ended their regular season with a nice win after a poor season in which they did not qualify for the playoffs.
