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.

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.

Sedin scored the game's first goal at the 13:38 mark of the first period, but his team wasn't able to find the back of the net again. He's now scored in back-to-back games and he has 15 goals and 30 assists in 73 contests. Alex Edler and Troy Stecher picked up the assists on the goal.

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.

Henrik Sedin scored a goal in a 2-1 win over the Florida Panthers on Friday.

Henrik Sedin took a nice feed from brother Daniel before beating former Canucks teammate Roberto Luongo for his 1,000th career NHL point in his 1,213th game. It was a special moment for the 36-year-old Swede and it must have been extra special to celebrate it with a win. Luca Sbisa scored the game-winning goal for the Canucks just over three minutes into the third period. Henrik Sedin now has 30 points in 47 games this season.

Henrik Sedin scored the only goal for either team as the Canucks beat the Predators 1-0 Tuesday night.

That was Sedin’s 232nd goal and 999th point in his career and it came with only one shot on goal. This broke an eight-game goalless slump and it extended his point streak to three straight games. More importantly it snapped a four-game skid by the Canucks. The last three losses all came in overtime.
Jan 18 - 12:59 AM

Henrik Sedin and Alex Ovechkin are tied in career points with 996.

The race is on to see who will be the 84th NHLer to reach the magical 1,000 point mark. Whoever gets it, the other will be the 85th. Ovechkin is a sure Hall-of-Famer but Sedin, while likely, is not a cinch to make it just yet.

Henrik Sedin registered two assists in Vancouver's 3-2 victory over Colorado on Monday.

Sedin has only been held off the scoresheet once in his last four games. He has nine goals and 26 points in 39 contests in 2016-17.
Jan 3 - 10:53 AM

Henrik Sedin completed the comeback in a 3-2 overtime win over the Anaheim Ducks on Friday.

Down 2-0 with just under two periods to play, the Canucks fought back, and eventually sent the game to overtime where Sedin took a feed on a 2-on-1 from Loui Eriksson and promptly put the puck passed Gibson. Henrik Sedin is now up to 24 points in 37 games this season with 12 of those points coming in his last 15 games.

Henrik Sedin and Loui Eriksson both snapped long goal-less streaks as the Vancouver Canucks beat the Los Angeles Kings 2-1 Wednesday night.

Sedin earned his first goal since December 6th—a span of nine games. Eriksson has not found the back of the net in his last 13 games, so it was unlikely they were on very many fantasy rosters. With such limited output in the past 30 days it is difficult to suggest fantasy players form a bandwagon.

Henrik Sedin lifted his point streak to four games with a goal during Tuesday's 3-2 loss to the Devils.

The Canucks' Captain is now up to two goals and five points during the streak. His totals now stand at seven goals and 17 points in 26 games.

Henrik Sedin scored the only goal for the Canucks in a 3-1 loss to Anaheim on Thursday.

The Sedins were snake bitten nearly the entire night but when re-united with Loui Eriksson late they found a way to turn a fortunate bounce in the Ducks zone into the only goal their team could muster. The Canucks captain has six goals and nine assists for 15 points in 24 games. He and his brother continue to get the most ice-time on this team and perhaps more importantly, all the power-play time.
