Daniel and Henrik Sedin plan to leave the NHL the same way they came into the League: Together.
You won’t be seeing double anymore in Vancouver as the 37-year-old forwards will focus on family, as they leave the NHL and have no regrets.
The identical twins and lifelong linemates announced Monday they will retire at the end of the 2017-18 regular season, ending two remarkable careers that have been intertwined since the Vancouver Canucks selected them No. 2 and No. 3 in the 1999 NHL Draft.
Daniel leads the Canucks in career goals (391), power-play goals (137) and game-winning goals (85), and won the Art Ross Trophy with 104 points (41 goals, 63 assists) in 2010-11. Henrik is first in in assists (828), points (1,068), plus/minus (167) and won the Hart and Art Ross trophies in 2009-10 after he had 112 points (29 goals, 83 assists). Daniel, who has 1,038 points, and Henrik are the only brothers in League history to reach the 1,000-point milestone.
The closest they came to winning a Stanley Cup was in 2011 when they went to the final losing to Brad Marchand and the Boston Bruins.
Good luck to # 22 and # 33, happy retirement from Hot Country 1035!
