Sedins look to keep Art Ross in the family
The Art Ross trophy may not be going very far. A year after Henrik Sedin won it, his brother Daniel is the front-runner to take the award this season.
With the season winding down, Henrik Sedin will be hard pressed to win a second consecutive scoring title. He's currently six points off the pace in pursuit of the Art Ross Trophy, but not to worry. The trophy may not be going very far. Henrik's twin brother Daniel is the front-runner to take the award this season, wracking up 90 points (38 goals, 52 assists) so far.

If Daniel holds off Steven Stamkos, who is four points behind with 86 (43 goals, 43 assists), it would be the first time in NHL history that brothers have taken consecutive scoring titles. Henrik took the honors last year with a career-high 112 points (29 goals, 83 assists) during a Hart Trophy-winning season.

If it isn't Stamkos who pushes Daniel, however, it could very well be his brother. Henrik's 84 points (16 goals, 68 assists) have him very much in the mix for the scoring title, but should things stay the way they are, it would be the first time brothers finished first and third in the League in scoring since Doug and Max Bentley pulled it off in the 1942-43 season.

If Henrik can hop over Stamkos, it would be the first time in League history that brothers finished first and second in the scoring race.

The following is a list of brothers to finish in the top 10 in League scoring in the same season:
