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.

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.

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.

Henrik Sedin will play in his 1261st game tonight when the Canucks take on the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Sedin will move passed Radek Dvorak for 14th most career games played amongst European skaters. He has 1023 points in 1260 games so far in his career. However, with just three points in 12 games this season, it appears his fantasy relevant days are behind him.

Henrik Sedin hasn't logged 13 minutes of action in each of the last three games.

Sedin earned his third assist in seven matches in a 4-2 win over Buffalo on Friday night. He played 12:17 versus the Sabres. "I think we've had a couple of games where their minutes have been 12½. There's been a couple others where it's been 17, said Travis Green referring to the ice time of the Sedin twins. "I see them going back and forth between those numbers."

Henrik Sedin picked up a pair of assists in Tuesday's 3-2 shootout loss against the Senators.

Sedin did absolutely nothing in the season opener, failing to record a shot in just 13:30 of ice time. He was much more involved in this one and the two-point game should get him going. He also skated 16:00 after limited shifts in the first outing.

Henrik Sedin logged just 13:30 minutes in the Canucks' season opener.

The Sedin twins have been the driving force of the Canucks for years, but at the age of 37, they'll playing in more of a supporting role. "We’ve always said that (ice time) is not going to be a problem this year — we understand the situation and we’re fine with it," Henrik said. "You’re going to see a lot of guys’ ice time go up and down. We always want minutes but we’re old enough to understand where we are as a team. I don’t think they’re interested in us winning and playing 22 minutes. That’s not going to be the case and we’re good with it." Daniel Sedin logged 14:02 minutes in the opener. They've seen their offensive production decline in recent years and this isn't likely to be a bounce back season for them.
Oct 10 - 6:36 AM

The Vancouver Canucks still haven't figured out which forward will play with Henrik and Daniel Sedin this year.

Free-agent forward Sam Gagner was given an opportunity to play on that line for two games during the preseason, but it just hasn't worked out. That doesn't mean that it can't eventually work out though. One player to keep an eye on is rookie Brock Boeser, who is one of the top prospects in the organization. If they give Boeser a shot, he could have some solid fantasy value this season.

In case there was any doubt, Canucks GM Jim Benning has no intention of trading Daniel and Henrik Sedin.

"We're not moving the Sedins unless they come to me at some point and they say, 'Well, we want to move on,'" Benning said. "When we've talked to them, we're not going to go to them and ask them to waive their no-trade. We're not going to approach them for them to move on to another team." Honestly, Vancouver probably couldn't trade the Sedin twins even if they wanted to. They have a combined cap hit of $14 million for the 2017-18 campaign and are both coming off rough seasons. Given that they'll turn 37-years-old on Sept. 26 it's entirely possible that they'll decline even further this season. Outside of that, it doesn't make much sense for the Canucks to move them. Granted Vancouver is rebuilding, but shipping them now would be painful for the fanbase. The ideal would be for them to finish their NHL careers in Vancouver, though given that there's just one year left on their contracts that's not guaranteed to happen even if they aren't traded.

Henrik Sedin just wants to focus on this season.

"We think about our future on a regular basis, and we've said we're going to take it year by year now," said Henrik referring to himself and his twin brother, Daniel. "This year, we want to prove we can still play at a high level, and that's up to us to do. And we know that if we do, it'll be easier to answer those questions later in the year. So that's our mindset." He registered just 35 assists last season, which was his fewest in a full NHL campaign since he had 31 in 2003-04. Henrik concluded the year with 50 points in 82 contests. Daniel struggled as well with 15 goals 44 points in 82 games The Sedins want to help Vancouver move up the standings this season, but they'll need to have much better statistical performances to make that happen. Henrik and Daniel will enter the fourth season of their four-year, $28 million contracts in 2017-18.

The Vancouver Canucks have revealed their keeper list for the upcoming expansion draft.

The Canucks will keep Henrik and Daniel Sedin, Bo Horvat, Sven Baertschi, Loui Eriksson, Markus Granlund, Brandon Sutter, Alexander Edler, Erik Gudbranson, Chris Tanev and Jacob Markstrom. The Vegas Golden Knights will get to choose from Derek Dorsett, Luca Sbisa, Philip Larsen and Jayson Megna.

Henrik and Daniel Sedin may finish their final year of their contracts with the Vancouver Canucks.

The 2017-18 season is the final year of the long-term deal both inked with no-movement clauses. While a playoff bound team may want them next season, the contracts and what a trading partner may want in return, be it draft choices and/or players, may be too high for a pair of 37-year-old forwards.

Henrik Sedin assisted on all three goals for the Canucks in a 4-3 loss to Arizona on Thursday.

The Sedins turned back the clock tonight with Daniel and Henrik combining for five points. The points snapped a six game point-less streak for Henrik. The 36-year-old has 48 points in 80 games. The Canucks captain is still on pace to set the lowest point per game pace in a season since the 2003/04 season.

Henrik Sedin became the 85th player to score 1,000 NHL points Friday night.

He is also the 38th player to accomplish the feat with one franchise and the fourth who was born in Sweden. It was a special moment for the 36-year-old veteran. "I don't know if you can really envision it," Henrik said. "Everything was good about it. We got a big win. It was nice [Edler] and Danny had the helpers. They've played for a long time and are two good friends. That was special. I think the best part by far was my teammates coming out on the ice and celebrating with me. That's something I will remember forever." He has 11 goals and 30 points in 47 games this season.
