The first line of Henrik and Daniel Sedin, along with Radim Vrbata have 17 points in their first three games.
That was a month's worth of stats at some points of last season for the Sedin twins so the addition of Vrbata to the lineup has done wonders, as had new head coach Willie Desjardins. Henrik has two goals and six points while brother Daniel has a goal and five helpers. Vrbata leads the way with three goals and has two assists to boot. Oct 18 - 9:38 AM

Henrik Sedin registered a goal and an assist as the Canucks took down the Oilers 5-4 in the shootout Saturday night.

The offensive-minded players on the Canucks should all perform better this season, now that they are no longer coached by John Tortorella in his style tailored less toward puck possession and more toward selling out on defense. It all starts with the Sedins. Henrik now has four points on the season, and Daniel picked up three assists to give him four as well. Radim Vrbata also had a solid game with a goal and an assist. Nick Bonino and Linden Vey scored the other goals.

Henrik Sedin had a goal and assist in their 4-2 victory in Calgary. The Sedin twins looked sharp with their new linemate, Radim Vrbata.

Sedin picked up his assist on a second period Radim Vrbata goal and later added an impressive empty net goal to secure the win. Sedin battled with Mark Giordano for possession of a loose puck near the empty net and managed to get his stick on the puck after falling and kicking it towards the net.

Henrik Sedin had no trouble finding his teammates Friday night, as the Canucks took it to the Flames.

Jannik Hansen and Radim Vrbata couldn't have it easier as they one-timed Sedin's strong-to-weakside feed past Douglas Carr. If nothing else, he and his teammates had over seven minutes of power-play time to get in sync.

Henrik Sedin assisted on all 3 Vancouver goals in their shutout victory over Calgary on Friday night.

Henrik and his brother Daniel combined for 5 assists on the night. All 3 Vancouver goals were scored with the man advantage as Linden Vey, Jannik Hansen and Radim Vrbata all collected power play goals. Henrik Sedin only managed 50 points during a disappointing 2013-14 season.

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.

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.

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.
