    Sedin scored a pair of goals, including the overtime winner, Thursday against Arizona.

  • Canucks' Daniel Sedin: Retiring after season

    Sedin -- along with his brother Henrik -- announced his retirement following the conclusion of the 2017-18 campaign.

    The Sedin twins spent their entire NHL careers playing for Vancouver after being drafted second and third overall in the 1999 NHL Draft. Unfortunately for Daniel, he is currently bogged down in a 14-game goal drought and will no doubt want to get at least one more in the Canucks' final three games. With 391 tallies, the winger will end his career as the all-time leading scorer for Vancouver and second in total points (1,038) -- just 30 behind his brother.

  • Canucks' Daniel Sedin: Notches assist

    Sedin recorded an assist during a 6-0 victory over Dallas on Sunday.

    Following the minor back injury he suffered in mid January, Sedin has recorded three goals and an assist in 11 games, and has been skating with Henrik Sedin and Thomas Vanek on the first line recently. Sedin's also been receiving heavy power-play minutes, averaging 2:52 of ice time during the last 10 games while recording two points on the man advantage during the span. He currently sits at 14 power-play points on the season -- tied for second most on the Canucks. The 37-year-old's days of surpassing 60 points are certainly fading, but with 32 points (13 goals, 19 assists) in 32 games, he's inching closer to hitting the 40-point mark for the 14th straight season.

  • Canucks' Daniel Sedin: Ready as expected

  • Canucks' Daniel Sedin: Back issue behind him

    Sedin is no longer dealing with the back spasms that caused him to miss last Sunday's game.

    Sedin appears good to go heading into Saturday's matchup, but that should be confirmed when the lines are released during warmups, if not before then. The veteran winger has been on a bit of a point binge, racking up two goals and three assists over his last four tilts. He should slot back into his normal top-six role with the Canucks on Saturday assuming his back doesn't act up again.

  • Canucks' Daniel Sedin: Not suiting up Sunday

    Sedin is dealing with back spasms and won't play in Sunday's game against Minnesota.

    With Vancouver about to enter their bye week, this is likely a precautionary measure to help keep the veteran healthy for the stretch run. With Sedin out Michael Chaput will suit up in his absence and Sven Baertschi will likely slot up to the second line, and the 37-year-old will shoot to return for next Saturday's tilt against Edmonton.

The 37-year-old is far from the player he once was, but Sedin is on pace to surpass his 15 goals and 44 points from a season ago.
