Daniel Sedin and Henrik Sedin each will have his jersey retired by the Vancouver Canucks next season.
There is no date yet for the ceremony, but owner Francesco Aquilini told Sportsnet 650 on Thursday that it would occur during Vancouver's 50th anniversary celebration and details would be released prior to next season.
Henrik, who was captain from 2010-18, will have his No. 33 retired; Daniel will have his No. 22 retired.
The 38-year-old twins who were selected one pick apart in the 1999 NHL Draft (Daniel No. 2, Henrik No. 3) spent their entire 17-season NHL careers with Vancouver.
Henrik is the Canucks all-time leader in points (1,070), assists (830), games (1,330), power-play points (369) and plus/minus (plus-165), and is seventh in goals (240). He also set a Canucks record with 679 consecutive games played.
Daniel is the Canucks all-time leader in goals (393), power-play goals (138) and game-winning goals (86), and ranks second in points (1,041), assists (648), games played (1,306) and plus/minus (plus-147).
The Canucks previously have retired four numbers: No. 10 (Pavel Bure), No. 12 (Stan Smyl), No. 16 (Trevor Linden) and No. 19 (Markus Naslund).
