Ageless wonders

by Derek Jory / Vancouver Canucks
The more things change, the more they stay the same. Or in the case of the Sedins, the more things change, the more things change.

When players enter the NHL, they’re pups in their late teens or early 20s for the most part. The ideal scenario is to draft a player and have them retire with your team, number raised to the rafters.

Vancouver is currently home to a few of those players, longstanding soldiers who have battled for the crest on the front of their sweaters, not the name on the back, year after year after year.

Others were acquired via trade or signed as free agents. But regardless of how they joined the team, time has been good to the Canucks. Living on the west coast is apparently a fountain of youth; check out the following headshots from when the players entered the league to today. Boys to men, to say the least.
