Sedins say farewell to Vancouver with a (t)win over Arizona in dramatic fashion
Sedins say farewell to Vancouver with a (t)win over Arizona in dramatic fashion… see what we did there, “twin”? Just a few days ago, Daniel and Henrik Sedin announced that the 2017-18 NHL season will be their last.

There was plenty of hype in Vancouver last night, as fans wanted to say farewell to a unique set of players that provided Canucks fans with memories for the past 18 years. The finale couldn’t have had a better ending, as the Canucks won the game 4-3 (OT). The game winner was scored by (you guessed it!) Daniel Sedin, and assisted by (you guessed it again!) Henrik Sedin. The pair had a combined 4 points on the night.
Daniel and Henrik were drafted 2nd and 3rd overall by Vancouver in the 1999 NHL Entry Draft. For the Canucks, have gone to be the all time games-played leaders, and lead almost all major statistical columns. Surely they’ve punched their tickets into the Hockey Hall of Fame.
Congratulations on such two great career! Farewell to the two best Vancouver Canucks of all time, 22 and 33!
