Daniel and Henrik Sedin have announced that they will retire after the 2017-18 season.

The Sedin twins released a letter to Vancouver Canucks fans on the team's official website. They said: "We're saying it now because we want to share these final three games with you. We also want to share these games with our families, friends, teammates, coaches, trainers, staff and everyone at the Canucks who have supported us. You've all been with us every step of the way, and we want to thank you."

Don't be surprised if Daniel and Henrik Sedin retire at the end of the season.

While no announcement has been made, it will be awfully tough for the twins to remain on the same team, especially if they want even close to the amount of money they have been earning ($7 million per season). The two will turn 38 before the start of next season and they are 45-50 point players at this stage of their careers. If the duo are looking to get their names engraved on the Stanley Cup, they will have to go to a contender and be willing to substantially drop their salaries. Stay tuned.

Daniel Sedin took some positives from Vancouver's 3-0 loss to Anaheim on Wednesday.

"We’re looking for goals for sure, but we’re doing the right things," Sedin said. "The pucks aren’t going in, but I like that we were in it together tonight and I was proud of the guys. We wanted to be part of this game and show up for each other. We can take a lot from this game. We weren’t backing away, we were in there and doing it together. That’s a good sign and we just have to keep this up for the rest of the season and be positive." All that being said, Vancouver has now been shutout of three consecutive games, which is just terrible by any standard and under any set of circumstances. Of course, the Canucks have no hope of reaching the playoffs and at this point learning lessons might have more benefit than actually winning games.

Daniel Sedin scored a goal in a 4-3 overtime loss to the Nashville Predators.

Daniel Sedin had yet another great game, bringing him to eight goals and 12 points in his last eight games. He's owned in just 34% of Yahoo leagues and can definitely bring a jolt to your lineup over the last few weeks of the season. Bo Horvat and Brandon Sutter also scored in the loss.
Mar 3 - 12:49 AM

Daniel Sedin posted a goal, an assist, a minus-2 rating and six shots on goal in 14:37 of ice time Wednesday against the Rangers.

Sedin has scored at least one goal in four straight games, and six of the past seven outings. He also has seven goals with 12 points and a plus-3 rating across the past nine contests. Sedin is in a contract year and his future is rather murky, but he is still showing he has plenty left in the tank. He also remains a must-start fantasy option across the board, especially in pools that do not penalize plus/minus rating.
Mar 1 - 2:29 AM

Daniel Sedin picked up a goal late in Monday's 3-1 loss at Colorado on his only shot of the evening.

Sedin wired one into the cage to beat Semyon Varlamov in the final minute of regulation, benefiting from the extra attacker. It sliced Colorado's lead in half at the time, and spoiled the shutout bid of Varlamov. He now has at least one goal in each of his past three outings, and five of the past six contests. Sedin needs one more tally to reach 20 goals for the 11th time in 17 NHL campaigns.
Feb 27 - 12:05 AM

Daniel Sedin scored a pair of goals in Sunday's 3-1 win over the Arizona Coyotes.

Sedin opened the scoring with a power-play goal at the 2:16 mark of the first period before adding the go-ahead goal (2-1) at the 11:43 mark of the third frame. The veteran doesn't produce as much as he once did, but he's been on a bit of run of late. Sedin has put together three multi-point efforts in his last four games and he's accumulated nine points in his last seven contests. The 37-year-old has 18 goals and 41 points in 61 games this season.
Feb 26 - 12:22 AM

With his power-play goal Friday night, Daniel Sedin now has 135 for his career.

It's significant because it ties him with Daniel Alfredsson for second on the all-time list for power-play goals scored by Swedish-born players. Who's first you may ask? It's Mats Sundin with 160. We're not sure Sedin will be able to play long enough at a high level to get ample power-play ice time to top that mark, but he will certainly pass Alfredsson and hold down the second spot all to himself.
Feb 24 - 2:52 PM

Daniel Sedin had a goal and an assist in Friday's 6-3 loss to the Vegas Golden Knights.

Sedin registered the primary assist on Thomas Vanek's go-ahead goal (2-1) at the 13:48 mark of the first period. Unfortunately for the Canucks, Vegas scored the next four goals. Sedin added a power play marker to cut the deficit to 5-3 in the third period, but the Canucks were never able to come back. The veteran now has 16 goals and 39 points in 60 games this season. Seven of those points have come in his last six outings.
Feb 24 - 1:21 AM

Daniel Sedin scored his 14th of the season in a 4-1 loss to the San Jose Sharks on Thursday night.

Despite the loss, Sedin now has points in three straight games for Vancouver. The Swede now has 14 goals and 35 points in 57 games for Vancouver this season.
Feb 16 - 1:54 AM

Daniel Sedin saw only 10:20 minutes of ice time on Saturday.

Twin brother Henrik was on the ice for 13:18 as the end is getting nearer for the Sedins in quality ice time. That is bottom-six minutes for both who were used to playing 20-plus minutes during their heyday in Vancouver. Daniel Sedin has 13 goals and 32 points in 51 games which is a better pace than last season when he garnered only 44 all season. But the Canucks are going with their youth, namely Brock Boeser and Bo Horvat and they need the minutes as Vancouver is nowhere near a playoff spot.
Feb 4 - 9:54 AM

Daniel Sedin scored a goal in a 5-2 loss to the Edmonton Oilers.

Sedin was perfectly positioned in the high-slot to tip Alex Edler's shot from the point in behind Cam Talbot. It's Sedin's 11th of the year, bringing his point total to 30 in 45 games. Brandon Sutter also scored in the loss.
Jan 21 - 1:15 AM

Daniel Sedin will sit out Sunday night's tilt against the Wild due to back spasms.

The 37-year-old has 10 goals and 29 points in 44 games this season, and will be missed as the Canucks face Devan Dubnyk and the Wild. Sedin has not missed a game since the 2013-14 season.
Jan 14 - 7:34 PM

Daniel Sedin scored the Vancouver Canucks' lone goal in a 3-1 loss to the Washington Capitals on Tuesday night.

Sedin's now scored in back-to-back games for the first time this season. Alas, the Canucks only got one goal in the game. Sedin now has 10 goals and 28 points in 43 games this season.
