Sedin scored a goal and added a power-play helper Tuesday in Chicago. Sedin opened the scoring against netminder Corey Crawford in the first period, and set up his twin brother for the overtime winner to secure a 5-4 win against backup Scott Darling. His 30 assists are tops on the Canucks, and the 36-year-old Swede sits just three points behind Bo Horvat for the team lead. Both Sedin twins have 14 goals despite Henrik having taken 102 fewer shots.
Sedin set up a pair of goals in a 6-3 loss to the Bruins on Monday. While the 36-year-old's 42 points shouldn't land that far from last season's output of 55, his minus-21 rating is uncharacteristically horrendous. The decline of the Sedins is inevitable, but the lack of a strong supporting cast on offense (not to mention a porous defense) in Vancouver has certainly made things worse.
Sedin scored his 13th goal of the season in Saturday's win over the Kings. That's 39 points in 64 games for the captain, who has been held off the scoresheet just twice in his last seven outings. Sedin is no longer a big point producer, but he's still consistent and worth owning in most fantasy formats. It's doubtful the Canucks will make the playoffs, however, so it's unlikely you'll see a late-season surge from him. More ice time could be given to younger players down the stretch, but Sedin is still a safe bet for offense on any given night.
Sedin registered two assists -- one on the power play -- during Thursday's win over Columbus. While the multi-point showing was nice, Sedin failed to mark the scoresheet in any of the peripheral categories. With just 11 goals, 67 shots, 10 PIM, 11 hits and a minus-16 rating, the veteran pivot is only moving the needle in one category, and it limits his fantasy value considerably. Sedin has also totaled just 34 points through 54 games, which is a far cry from the offensive production he provided during his prime.
Sedin scored a goal to go along with a plus-2 in Friday's 2-1 win against the Panthers. The goal was the 36-year-old Sedin's 1,000th point for his career. Sedin did not seem bothered by the approaching milestone, as he posted a goal with two assists over his past three outings. He remains on track for another 50-point season, but he has a career-worst minus-10 and that doesn't look to be turning around anytime soon.
