Sedin scored a game-tying power-play goal in the final five minutes of regulation in Friday's shootout loss to Dallas. A clutch effort from Henrik, who helped the Canucks earn a much-needed point. Sedin is now riding a six-game point streak and has piled up five goals and 14 points in his last nine games. The top-line center has been held off the scoresheet just twice in his last 15 outings and is up to 23 points on the season -- 11th most in the NHL. He may be 35-years-old, but Sedin is showing why he's still one of the best playmakers in the game. Use him well.
Sedin scored a shorthanded goal in Sunday's loss to the Devils. It was a thing of beauty from Sedin, who is riding a four-game point streak in which he's recorded two goals and six assists. The top-line center sits 10th in the NHL scoring race with 21 points and is sporting a tidy plus-7 rating, so make sure the point-producing machine is in your lineup every game.
Sedin scored his sixth goal of the season and dished out four assists in Saturday's win over the Blackhawks. A monstrous five-point night for Sedin, who saw his brother get a hat trick against the rival Blackhawks. Henrik now has 20 points in 21 games on the season and is sitting among the top-10 NHL assist leaders. He's once again showing why he's one of the best playmakers in the game. You know what to do.
Sedin picked up a goal and an assist at even strength as well as a second tally into an empty net Tuesday against Columbus. Henrik's line with his brother Daniel and Jannik Hansen combined for 12 points in Tuesday's game. Sedin's continued the trend of last year's surprisingly high goal total -- 18, more than he'd managed in any of the prior three seasons -- this season, as he's scored five times on just 24 shots. That shooting percentage isn't sustainable, but it reflects Henrik's evolution as a player in his mid-30s. He's not settling for just being the dishmaster all the time.
Sedin extended his point streak to four games with an assist in Wednesday's loss to Pittsburgh. Sedin isn't exactly tearing it up right now, but he's gone four straight games with an assist and is up to eight points in 13 games on the season. The 35-year-old, who recorded his 1,000th career NHL point in Monday's win over the Flyers, is sporting a tidy plus-5 rating on the year. One thing to note, however, is that he's been held without a shot on goal for two straight games and is stuck on two goals this season. He'll produce points as the top-line center, but don't expect a lot of goals.
