Sedin garnered an assist in Wednesday's overtime loss to the Rangers. Sedin has garnered a helper in four straight games, but he's still bogged down in a 46-game goal drought that dates back to Nov. 14. In fact, the veteran has just two goals on the year, but has managed 40 assists and a 14th consecutive 40-plus point campaign. For fantasy owners not concerned about goals, the Swede can still offer decent value.
Sedin logged an assist during a 6-0 victory over Dallas on Sunday. The 37-year-old now has helpers in two of his last three, but is still on a 38-game goalless drought -- the last time he scored was Nov. 14 against Los Angeles. Although Sedin has always been more known for his assist-making ability, he's also not firing the puck very often, and only has 48 shots on goal through 56 games this season. Additionally, his streak of 13 consecutive seasons with 10 or more goals is certainly in danger, as he only sits at two goals through 56 games. With his presence locked onto Vancouver's first power-play unit, Sedin should continue to rack up assists, but a drastic increase in goals seems unlikely with his pass-first mentality.
Henrik and Daniel Sedin hope to play one more season, reports Sportsnet.ca. The twins are set to become unrestricted free agents this summer. It was widely assumed this would be the 37-year-olds' last season. "While there hasn't been discussions yet with the Canucks about an extension, the belief is they both want to be back for an 18th NHL season," said Sportsnet.ca's Chris Johnston on CBC's Saturday Headlines. Henrik sat third in team scoring with 32 points, including 30 helpers, heading into Saturday night's game and clearly has something left in the tank.
Sedin recorded two assists during Friday's 5-2 win over Columbus. Sedin has now recorded five helpers during a four-game assist streak and is up to 31 points through 44 contests for the campaign. However, with just two goals, 34 shots and a minus-10 rating, the veteran center is a one-trick pony at this stage of his career. Outside of points-only formats, Sedin's fantasy value is severely capped.
Sedin picked up a pair of assists in Tuesday's loss to the Habs. Sedin is now riding a five-game point streak in which he's collected eight assists. He's only found the back of the net twice, but it's hard to complain about his 25 points through 35 contests. The veteran is barely shooting the puck, but it's his slick playmaking ability that makes him valuable in fantasy. His steady production makes him a safe fantasy bet whenever the Canucks are in action.
