by Staff Writer / Vancouver Canucks
Vancouver, B.C. - Vancouver Canucks General Manager Mike Gillis announced today that the Canucks have re-signed forwards Daniel and Henrik Sedin to identical five-year deals. In keeping with club policy, terms were not disclosed.


“Daniel and Henrik Sedin are this club’s offensive leaders and players we want to build around,” said Mike Gillis. “Their level of performance in every area of the game is exceptional; both Daniel and Henrik are committed to winning and we want them to succeed as Vancouver Canucks.”

Daniel averaged a point-per-game in the regular season and playoffs, sharing the team scoring lead with Henrik for the 2008-09 season. He recorded 31 goals, a career high 51 assists (31-51-82) and 36 penalty minutes in 82 games played. In 10 postseason contests he scored four goals, six assists (4-6-10) and had eight penalty minutes. Over the past five seasons he has missed only one of 410 NHL games. Daniel ranks 7th on the Canucks all-time scoring list with 462 points (179-283-462) in 642 career games, 10th all-time in playoff scoring with 28 points (9-19-28) in 53 games and 2nd in game winning goals with 36. Daniel won gold at the 2006 Winter Olympics in Torino, Italy with Team Sweden recording three points (1-2-3) in eight games played.

Henrik shared the team lead in scoring and matched Daniel with a point-per-game average in 2008-09. He recorded a new career goal-high scoring 22 times, adding 60 assists (22-60-82) and 48 penalty minutes in 82 games played, his fourth consecutive 82-game season. He also recorded 10 points in 10 playoff games (4-6-10) with two penalty minutes. The NHL named Henrik second star for the month of March after he recorded 19 points (7-12-19) in 14 games. Henrik ranks 8th all-time in club scoring with 460 points (109-351-460) in 646 career games and 9th all-time in playoff scoring with 30 points (14-16-30) in 53 postseason games. In 2008 he was selected to the NHL All-Star Game in Atlanta, where he recorded two assists. Henrik won gold with Team Sweden at the 2006 Winter Olympics in Torino, Italy scoring three goals and an assist in eight games.

Daniel and Henrik Sedin, 28 years-old, were drafted by Vancouver second and third overall, respectively, in the 1999 NHL Entry Draft.
