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

It was Henrik's first goal of the season and a bit of fluke as hit deflected in off a sprawling Kris Russell. It was just his second point of the series and the Canucks are going to need more from their top line if they want to extend this series. The Canucks as a team had just three shots combined in the second period.

Daniel and Henrik Sedin have seen their ice time be surprisingly limited in the playoffs.

Henrik Sedin is averaging just 16:51 minutes per game while Daniel is getting 16:26 minutes. Given that they're the Canucks top two players, you would think that they would be leaned on heavily in the first round series. Canucks coach Willie Desjardins defended his use of the Sedins by pointing out that they're getting more shifts than any other Canucks forwards, they're just keeping those shifts short. "They play their best when their shifts are short and that's a real good sign for us," Desjardins said. "It's everybody on the outside that's really concerned about that. I'm not worried about it." Vancouver is trailing Calgary 2-1 going into Game 4 on Tuesday.

Sedin is the 52nd player to ever reach that milestone. He was limited to 50 points in 2013-14, but he's bounced back this season with 18 goals and 69 points in 80 contests. The 34-year-old should have several years of good hockey left in him, which will allow Sedin to climb up the leaderboard further. His next target is Jeremy Roenick, who finished with 703 career assists.

Henrik Sedin extended his points streak to three games with an assist on Yannick Weber's tally on Thursday night. However the Avalanche would go on to win the game 4-1.

Not that Sedin has been good this season on the draw because he has won only 46.6 percent of the 1263 faceoffs that he has taken this year but Saturday was a particular bad night for the center. He has 15 goals and 60 points this season which is good for 16th overall in the scoring race.

Henrik Sedin became the third fastest Swedish born NHL player to crack the 900 point mark with two goals in a 5-2 loss to San Jose on Tuesday.

Henrik Sedin has been racking up points during an eight game streak. He has five goals and 13 total points over the stretch for the injury riddled Canucks. Henrik's 44 assists rank third overall in the NHL and his 59 points in 64 games is good for 19th in the league. Brother Daniel picked up two assists in the loss and now has 56 points in his own right this year. It has been a really nice bounce-back year for the Sedins, who some people thought were on the wrong side of their careers after last season's dreadful campaign. Start them in all formats confidently.

Henrik Sedin potted two goals for the Canucks in a wild 5-4 shootout win over the Rangers on Thursday night.

The 34-year-old Swede had no points and was a -2 the last time the Canucks met the defending Eastern Conference champs in December. It was a different story this time around as Sedin scored two third-period goals, the second with just two minutes remaining, to help Vancouver eventually prevail in the shootout. Sedin now has 50 points in 57 games this season.

Henrik Sedin helped to lead his Canucks to a big 3-2 win over Minnesota on Monday night with a rare goal and an assist.

Just 42 seconds into the second period, Henrik Sedin finished off a scramble in front of the Wild net for his 10th goal of the season, giving him 11 consecutive double digit goal seasons. You might wonder why that's noteable, consider that with tonight's two points Sedin now has 48 points and just 59 shots through 56 games this season. Continuing a trend we've seen since 2012. Regardless the Captain still ranks among the league's best scorers, not to mention leading his own team.

Henrik Sedin is on a three-game point streak.

Sedin chipped in two assists in Vancouver's 5-4 overtime win against Chicago. He has nine goals and 46 points in 53 contests in 2014-15. Anyone who took a chance on Sedin after his lackluster 2013-14 campaign has been richly rewarded. Although age will eventually catch up with him, he's not likely to hover near the point-per-game mark for at least a couple more seasons.
Feb 12 - 10:04 AM

Henrik Sedin collected two more assists in Vancouver's 5-2 win over Buffalo on Friday night.

They weren't the prettiest of assists, but they count just the same. Henrik Sedin's helpers came thanks to Nick Bonino's excellent batting skills to make it 3-1 in second period, and Radim Vrbata putting home the empty-net goal. With Daniel Sedin picking up an assist on Bonino's goal as well, the Sedin twins now co-lead the team in assists with 31 and points with 40.

Sedin now has nine goals and 37 points through 42 games this season. Though the 34-year-old is no longer in the elite crop of scoring forwards in the league he is still a very productive player for the Canucks and will look to keep that up on Friday in Carolina.
