Henrik Sedin will play in his 1300th NHL game Saturday.
He willl be third all-time in games played by a Swedish-born NHLer, behind only Nicklas Lidstrom (1564) and Mats Sundin (1346). Sedin will also rank 61st amongst all NHL players in games played. That's quite an accomplishment. The Sedins have had a bit of a resurgence this season and as a result are once again fantasy relevant in deep hockey pools. Feb 3 - 1:26 PM

Canucks GM Jim Benning has reached out to the Sedin twins' agent to get a sense for what Henrik and Daniel's future plans are.

The duo are in the final season of their matching four-year, $28 million contracts. Henrik and Daniel Sedin are both having strong seasons and helping to mentor the Canucks' young players, so if there were interested in signing a one-year extension, then Benning would likely do so. For now though, Benning just wants to get a sense of what they're planning. "We’re going into the trade deadline, and for planning purposes we want to see if there was any way that they were leaning," said Benning. "We’re not going to hold it (decision) to them if something changes between now and the end of the year." It's unlikely that the Sedin twins would be traded even if they say that they don't intend on coming back, if for no other reason than their cap hits would make it difficult to work something out. However, if they are looking on coming back, then knowing that the veteran role is being filled could give the Canucks more confidence to shop Thomas Vanek at the deadline.

Henrik Sedin is an Oiler killer.

In 93 career games against Edmonton, Sedin has registered a very impressive 83 points. And guess who the Canucks play Saturday night? That's right. The Oilers. We'll play the historical card and start Sedin Saturday evening.

Henrik Sedin has been productive since mid-November despite not scoring a single goal.

Henrik has always been known as the playmaking twin, but his stats since mid-November are a little extreme, even for him. In 24 games, Sedin has registered a healthy 24 assists, but he has not bulged the twine even once over that period of time. Strange stat, but true. We are certainly enjoying the Sedin renaissance, but don't expect many goals from Henrik.
Jan 13 - 2:15 PM

Henrik Sedin extended his point streak to three games on Tuesday.

Sedin recorded an assist in the Canucks' 3-1 loss to Washington. He has two goals and 29 points in 43 contests this season. That's pretty solid given that his playing time has declined this season to about 15:30 minutes per game.
Jan 10 - 7:27 AM

Henrik Sedin enters Saturday night's contest on a six-game assist streak.

His longest helper streak in his career is seven games, which he has accomplished twice before. Sedin has nine assists over that span. Unfortunately, he hasn't been doing much else in terms of offense this year. He only has two goals and 27 shots over 36 matches this season.

Henrik Sedin's point streak has reached five games.

Sedin registered two assists in Vancouver's 7-5 loss to Montreal on Tuesday. He has two goals and 25 points in 35 contests this season.

Both Henrik and Daniel Sedin picked up three assists each in a 4-3 overtime win over the San Jose Sharks.

The twins picked up a pair of assists on both on Markus Granlund's goals, and then another pair of assists on Brock Boeser's 17th goal of the season. Henrik Sedin is now up to 22 points in 33 games this season, with 15 of them coming in his last 13 games. He's well worth picking up in fantasy leagues if his slow start put him on your waiver wire.

Henrik Sedin registered an assist in Vancouver's 5-1 loss to Winnipeg Monday night.

That puts Sedin just one assist away from the 800 milestone. He would become the 31st player to reach that milestone. Pierre Turgeon currently holds 30th place on the all-time assists list with 812. As far as 2017-18 goes, Sedin has two goals and 18 points in 31 contests.
Tue, Dec 12, 2017 06:15:00 AM

Henrik Sedin recorded his 14th assist of the season in a 2-1 win over the Toronto Maple Leafs on Saturday night.

Henrik and his brother, Daniel, helped set up Alexander Edler's game-winning goal. He has racked up nine assists in his last seven games and currently has two goals and 16 points in 27 matches.
Sun, Dec 3, 2017 01:13:00 AM

Henrik Sedin recorded three assists in Vancouver's 5-3 win against Nashville Thursday night.

Sedin has only been held off the scoresheet once in his last six games. He's up to two goals and 15 points in 26 contests in 2017-18.
Fri, Dec 1, 2017 10:12:00 AM

Henrik Sedin is on a three-game point streak.

Sedin kept the run going with an assist in the Canucks' 3-2 loss to New Jersey on Friday. He has two goals and 11 points in 23 contests in 2017-18.
Sat, Nov 25, 2017 09:33:00 AM

Henrik Sedin picked up an even-strength goal and a power-play assist with a plus-1 rating in Tuesday's victory in Los Angeles.

It was Sedin's first multi-point performance since he picked up a pair of helpers against Ottawa in the second game of the season. Sedin has struggled offensively, as the goal was his second overall, but both have come over the past four outings. Perhaps he is starting to turn a corner and has a little left in the tank still.
Wed, Nov 15, 2017 02:06:00 AM

Henrik Sedin registered on assist in the Canucks' 3-2 loss to Detroit on Monday.

It was Sedin's first point since Oct. 20. He has just four assists in 14 contests this season. His role with the Canucks has declined to the point where he's averaged a modest 14:08 minutes per contest this season as he continues what could be his final campaign.
Tue, Nov 7, 2017 11:14:00 AM

Henrik and Daniel Sedin each played less than nine minutes on Saturday.

The duo used to play close to 20 minutes each in their heyday but they are at the tail-end of their careers and have been relegated to fourth line minutes. Henrik Sedin played 8:52 while brother Daniel saw 14 less seconds of action. They were held pointless and it looks as if the Canucks will use them sparingly as they give the kids a chance. Henrik has only three assists in 13 games while Daniel has a similar amount of helpers as well as two goals.
