The Sedin twins, 38, retired at the end of the 2017-2018 season and left behind a legacy that no one in this city will ever forget.

On Thursday, September 11th, 2017, both Daniel and Henrik wrote a piece in The Players’ Tribune highlighting their current contract situation.

“When I think of Vancouver, I think about one thing: Home” said Daniel.

Asides from being great people off the ice, they struck fear into the hearts of opponents every time they played.

Daniel has scored the most goals in franchise history (393). Henrik is the franchise leader in games played (1,330), assists (830) and points (1,070).

In October, the Vancouver Canucks organization also announced that they’ll be retiring the Sedin twins numbers next year during Vancouver’s 50th anniversary season. The jerseys retirements will be part of a week-long celebration and a date has not been set yet.
