New Vancouver bench boss Willie Desjardins has already made clear that he doesn't intend to use Daniel and Henrik Sedin to kill penalties.
Former coach John Tortorella's philosophy was to use his best players in all situations, but Desjardins intends to manage the ice time of his stars more carefully. "We have to share the workload," said Desjardins. "I don't think we're going to make the playoffs with one line being shut down. They're good at all aspects of the game. They're good at killing penalties and they're good five-on-five. They can play the power play. I think you're lucky to have players like that. For us, we want to make sure that they're able to go (and) at the end of the game, they're still fresh and they're playing hard. So that may mean managing their minutes a little bit. We want to play with four lines." This development should be viewed as a positive for Sedin owners in all leagues except those that reward shorthanded goals. Sep 9 - 9:11 PM

The Vancouver Canucks have interviewed Mike Johnston as they search for a new head coach.

Johnston has been the GM and coach for the last five year with the highly successful Portland Winterhawks of the WHL. Before that he was an assistant coach with Vancouver under Marc Crawford. "He has done an excellent job the last five years with Portland," new appointed GM Jim Benning said. "They play an up-tempo, skilled game and he has a history with the Canucks and the organization, so he understands the market. He is going to be a candidate. . .He coaches the style we want our team to play. The interview went well."

Vancouver Canucks GM Jim Benning doesn't want a coach that's a yeller and screamer.

In other words, not someone like former Canucks bench boss John Tortorella. Instead, he wants someone that's a teacher and he's previously expressed a desire to employ a coach that promotes an up-tempo, skilled game. Texas Stars coach Willie Desjardins might prove to be a good fit in Vancouver for those reasons, but the Stars are in the Calder Cup Final, so he can't interview for the job yet.

The Vancouver Canucks have reportedly signed Jim Benning to a multi-year deal to serve as their new general manager.

The signing of Benning will be announced on Friday. Benning is a former player that scored 52 goals and 243 points in 605 career games with Toronto and Vancouver. He joined the Boston Bruins in 2006 as their assistant general manager and helped them win the Stanley Cup in 2011. He's also been one of the reasons for the Bruins sustained success and was regarded as a possibility for the Buffalo Sabres' general manager gig before it went to Tim Murray.

Boston Bruins assistant general manager Jim Benning might be selected as the Vancouver Canucks' next general manager this week.

Benning was also in the running for the GM job in Buffalo before it went to Tim Murray. "That's what happens when you have success," Bruins president Cam Neely said. "Teams look at other organizations that have success and start inquiring about your management group. It's something that a lot of good organizations have had to deal with over time and we are dealing with that right now." It's worth emphasizing that nothing's official yet.

Henrik Sedin ended the season with 50 points while twin brother Daniel had 47.

The Sedins were thought to each have a shot at 100 points before the start of the season so needless to say, the combined total of 97 is very disappointing to fantasy owners and their lack of production was a big reason why the Canucks are on the outside looking in at the playoffs. Look for a comeback season from the twins in 2014-15.
Apr 14 - 10:16 AM

Henrik Sedin scored a goal in Vancouver's 4-2 loss to Colorado Thursday evening.

It has been a difficult season for the veteran center with his injuries and he now has 11 goals with 37 assists in 68 games. David Booth scored the other goal for the Canucks, while defenseman Dan Hamhuis assisted two goals in the loss.

Henrik Sedin has been named the Vancouver Canucks nominee for the Bill Masterton Trophy.

The Masterton s awarded to the player who best exemplifies the qualities of perseverance, sportsmanship, and dedication. Sedin had his 679 games played consecutive streak end this season but also managed to play in his 1,000th game for the Canucks. He has only 10 goals and 47 points, his worst NHL season since 2003-04 when he managed only 42 points in 76 games.

Henrik Sedin was pleased with the Vancouver power play on Saturday.

The captain played for the first time in five games as he returned from a knee injury. "Our power play felt great," Sedin said. "It felt like we moved the puck well, getting chances, getting guys in the right spots and it felt great. When you can score on it as well it gives your team a lot of momentum." Sedin combined with his twin brother Daniel to set up Alexander Edler for the power play goal. Sedin has 10 goals and 47 points in 66 games this year as he has been a huge disappointment to his fantasy owners.
Apr 6 - 11:06 AM

Henrik Sedin will return to the Canucks' lineup Saturday against the Kings.

The Vancouver captain has missed the past four games with a knee injury. "It felt good on Wednesday and better yesterday again. This morning, I’m right there. I’m ready to go," Sedin said. "It’s too bad we are where we are, but this is happening. We need a win." With four games remaining, the Canucks' have very slim playoff chances at this point, down seven points in the Western Conference wild-card race. Sedin has 10 goals and 46 points in 65 games.
Apr 5 - 7:49 PM

The Vancouver Canucks will be without the services of Henrik Sedin (leg) for at least two games.

Daniel Sedin only returned on Sunday, making the reunion of the twins was very brief. Henrik has 10 goals and 46 points in 65 games this season.
Mar 25 - 4:00 PM

Henrik Sedin suffered a leg injury during the second period on Sunday and did not return.

Sedin had been honored before the game for playing his 1,000th NHL game on March 12 and just got back his brother Daniel in Sunday's game before leaving with the injury. Consider him day-to-day for now. He has only 10 goals and 46 points in 65 games this season, a far cry from what was predicted for him before the season began.
Mar 24 - 9:15 AM

Henrik Sedin earned two assists in Vancouver's shootout win over Florida on Sunday.

The dynamic Swede has managed 192 goals, 641 assists and 833 points to go with a +201 rating in his 999 game career so far spanning 13 seasons. The 33 year-old, however, is on pace for his lowest offensive output since the 2004 season.
Mar 12 - 7:34 PM

Sedin hasn't scored a goal since Dec. 14, which amounts to a span of 21 games. Henrik probably misses his brother, Daniel, but he was struggling before his twin got injured. He has nine goals and 40 points in 56 matches this season.
