They came in together, they will go out together. The NHL has never seen anything quite like the Sedin twins.
Daniel Sedin and Henrik Sedin both played their final game at Rogers Arena and on an emotional Thursday night, they were lauded with cheers and honored with a special tribute video from the franchise the brothers played for their entire careers.
Former Canucks GM Brian Burke, now the Calgary Flames President of Hockey Operations, drafted the twins second and third in the 1999 NHL Entry Draft
After 17 seasons and over 1,000 career games and 1,000 career points apiece, one of the most unique stories in all of sports has come to a close in Vancouver.
In their final home game, of course, Daniel scored the winning goal in overtime and was assisted by Henrik. They beat the Arizona Coyotes 4-3. The twins were given a victory lap and showered with cheers from fans in attendance.
The Sedins are set to play their final NHL game on Saturday night in Edmonton against the Oilers.
