Sedin scored the power-play overtime winner and added an assist in Tuesday's 5-4 win over the Blackhawks. Sedin helped his twin brother open the scoring with a helper in the opening frame, then ended this contest in the extra session with Jonathan Toews in the box for interference. The 36-year-old winger's goal put him over the 40-point threshold for the 13th consecutive campaign while also ending a 10-game goal drought.
Sedin contributed two assists in a 6-3 loss to the Bruins on Monday. The pair of apples put an end to a six-game point drought for the veteran, who's now up to just 38 points in 69 contests this season. Sedin's minus-12 rating is easily the worst of his career, while his 13 goals aren't even close to last year's 28-tally showing. At 36 years old, it's clear the former 40-goal scorer is definitely past his prime, but it also hasn't helped that the team around him has been so bad this season.
Sedin lit the lamp Sunday against San Jose. The 37-year-old is seeing some regression with his age this season, yet he's still receiving his opportunities this year, averaging 19:01 of ice time and firing 138 shots on goal. Sedin now has one goal and three assists over the past four games, adding 15 shots on goal in that span. He hot right now, but his value is still best fit for deeper leagues in the long term.
Sedin picked up a goal at even strength on top of a power-play helper in Thursday night's 3-0 road victory against the Blue Jackets. Naturally, twin brother Henrik also factored into those scores. Still, Daniel's struggled to play a 200-foot game relative to his other seasons, as he's on pace for only 45 points and a minus-17 rating. For reference, he hasn't finished with a negative rating since his rookie season way back in 2000-01. When it comes to the Swede, try not to get too caught up in his name; he's a depreciating asset.
Sedin recorded a power-play assist on the game-winning goal against Colorado on Wednesday. While the 36-year-old veteran is no longer a fantasy cornerstone, he still brings enough to the table in most seasonal leagues to move the needle. He's locked into a top offensive role and has posted a respectable 11 goals, 27 points and 127 shots, after all.
